Involvement is 
key concern for 
Senate leaders 

Staff Writer 

The new school year has barely begun 
and Nicole Whitmarsh and Mark 
Shoenbeck, along with the other members 
of Senate, are aleady hard at work making 
sure the 1994-95 Associated Students of 
CLU (ASCLU) Senate runs smoothly. 

Schoenbeck, a 20-year-old junior from 
San Diego, is the 1994-95 ASCLU Presi- 
dent. One of his main goals this year will be 
getting the students more involved in cam- 
pus activities. 

"Everyone, including freshmen and trans- 
fer students should get involved around 
campus. Not just discuss problems but take 
action, when you see something that needs 
to be done, bring it to the Senate," 
Schoebenck said. 

Whitmarsh, the 1994-95 ASCLU Vice- 
President, agrees and adds that she also 
wants to change the attitudes of students. 

"Our main goal is to work on student 
apathy, to change attitudes of students in a 
more positive direction which will result in 
more positive changes," said the 20-year- 
old junior. 

Other goals of this year's Senate are to be 
receptive to student's needs, getting CLU 
to meet community needs and improving 
handicap accessibility on campus. 

The 34-member Senate is made up of an 
exec uti ve cabinet, commissioners and sena- 
tors and Whitmarsh believes that the Senate 
members are not just students but, "liaisons 
between the students and the administra- 
tion. We try to meet students' needs by 
taking them to the appropriate people." 

Every aspect of campus life seems to have 
a representative, including commuters, re- 
ligious activities, publications, and associ- 
ated men's and women's services. 

"I think we represent students very well," 
Schoenbeck said. 

Besides planning campus activities such 
as dances and Homecoming, one main job 
of Senate is to handle the allocation of a 
portion of student fees, totaling about 
$20,000, for capital expenditures. Capital 
expenditures are things on campus that can 
be permanently improved. Students can 
give suggestions to their representatives or 
bring an idea directly to a Senate meeting 
for discussion. 

"I'd encourage students to talk to their 
class officers about concerns or ideas that 
they feel could improve the CLU commu- 
nity," Schoenbeck added. 

Senate meets on Wednesdays at 5 p.m. in 
the T.V. lounge of the SUB.

Peer Advisers Help Ease Freshman fears 

For most freshmen, going away to college 
for the first time can be a bit intimidating. 
But, for freshmen entering CLU, the expe- 
rience may go a little smoother due to the 
the CLU Peer Advisers who try to make 
sure their transition from home life to resi- 
dence hall life goes smoothly. 

"We want to provide the freshmen with 
an opportunity to meet new people without 
having to feel peer pressure," said senior 
Marcie Hegebush. 

Some of the activities include informa- 

tional meetings, visits to faculty adviser's 
homes, the Lip Sync and a trip to a location 
decided upon by the Peer Advisors. 

Hegebush said that her "peer kids" en- 
joyed the Lip Sync the most. 

"I think they liked the Lip Sync the best 
because they dressed me up like a nerd. 
They were dressed up goofy too. They got 
a real kick out of that," she added. 

The Peer Advising program is run by 
Sally Schillaci and Mike Fuller, Directors 
of Campus Activities.

Managing Editor 

With the beginning of the fall semester, 
many improvements on campus have 
developed over the summer. The most 
apparent advancements on campus 
include the birth of 88.5 F.M. KCLU 
(slated to broadcast in early October), the 
move of the university post office and 
student mail boxes into the SUB, and the 
installation of CLUnet in the residence 
halls for student use. 

Computer access services, including E- 
mail , are scheduled for student access 
during the month of October. Students 
will be able to utilize this information 
within their rooms on campus as the 
system is completed. More information 
on these services will be available as the 
systems become activated. 

Dr. Jonathan Boe expressed his appre- 
ciation about the CLUnet systems saying 
the new service will "open many research 
possibilities for students and faculty. The 
system will also allow students and 
faculty advisors to access current infor- 
mation from the Registrar to monitor 
class scheduling for a four year program." 

In addition to these improvements. ihe 
administration is also focusing on new 
ways to help student advancement at 
CLU. Boe was recently named the 
Dean of the school of Arts and Sciences. 
His role will include working with the 
different academic disciplines on campus 
to continue revising the academic quality 
for students at CLU. 

Boe is currently developing an 
assessment program to evaluate the 
affects and results of student performance 
through the four year program. In 
conjunction with Dr. Pam Jolicoeur, 
academic revision of Core 21 will 
continue, aiding students' academic 
progress and scheduling ease over a four 
year program. Emphasis on student- 
advisor communication will also be a 
integral role for Boe. "I want to find 
ways to make our advising system most 
effective for students to minimize 
headaches during their senior year," he

KCLU General 
Manager anxious for 
live broadcasts 

When Dan Kuntz applied for the position of head 
soccer coach last year, the furthest thing from his mind 
was the KCLU radio station, he said, as saws and 
hammers echoed through the halls of MountClef 
dormitory, signifying the construction of the new radio 

Nevertheless, he said he is ready for double duty. "I 
never wanted to let go of soccer because that was the 
main reason I came. The school agreed, so I decided to 
do both." 

His radio days date back to his college years when he 
was an undergraduate at Arizona State University. 

"I have always been involved in radio and I had 
always wanted to work for a professional radio station, 
but I never expected to be general manager," Kuntz 

"It's a lot of hours a week and a labor of love but, I 
thought, 'How often does someone get to do two things 
they enjoy most?' 

"I'll sacrifice for awhile, but not for long. My family 
comes first, and I don't want that aspect of my life to 
suffer," he added. 

Kuntz became involved in the station last year when 
the KCLU Planning Committee asked him to draw up a 
proposal for the overall plan of the tower. 

"They wanted an idea of costs and procedures over 
the long term. They asked me to write a business plan, 
so I gathered resources from National Public Radio, the 
Corporation for Public Broadcasting and other places." 

But, even though Kuntz will head the new station, he 
is the last in a long line of dedicated people working to 
get KCLU on the air. 

"Dr. (Bev) Kelley and Tim Schultz kept the light 
shining through the years and the faculty review 
committee got behind it and made sure it was done." 

Previously, the station could only be heard on cable- 
cast which listeners could hook into via thier cable 
outlet. The new tower will provide a large portion of 
Ventura County with a station they can call thier own. 

"The station will reach about 300,000 people in the 
surrounding areas per week," Kuntz said. 

At left: The site of the new radio station. At right: Calleguas Ridge, site of the new tower. 

In addition to wanting to bring jazz, CLU sports 
programs and educational series to the area through 
KCLU, Kuntz would like to see the new station as more 
than just a voice on the radio. 

"We want to establish ourselves as part of the 
community. We want the students to be proud. We want 
the school to be proud and we want the community to be 

"When people turn on KCLU they will say, 'Finally, a 
radio station that pays attention to Ventura County," he 

Despite the long and rigorous trail the proponents of 
the tower have had to climb, Kuntz said that having the 
whole school behind the process made the journey more 

"Facilities was great They were involved from top to 
bottom. It took a heckuva lot of people and we're really 
proud now that we're finally here. We still have some 
rough roads ahead but we're anxious to see how it all 

In the final council hearings several years ago, the 
school faced much opposition to the proposed sight of 
the tower, which would have been on Mt. Clef ridge. 
But so far, Kuntz has heard no negativity from the 
residents of the Conejo Valley. 

"In general, the community has been very supportive. 

KCLU's History 

•1973 — Station in planning stages; Tim Schultz, engineer of the project, enlisted to 
help while still a CLC student.

•June 1993 — Final permission granted; new application filed with FCC. 
•Oct. 13, 1993 — FCC grants new construction permit to expire on April 13, 1994. 
•Oct. 26, 1993 — Meeting held by radio tower production committee; Dr. Pamela Jolicoeur forms KCLU 
Task Force formed to give final analysis to Board of Regents. 

•Jan. 31, 1994 — Committee presents findings and recommendations to Board of Regents. 
•Feb. 15, 1994 — Board of Regents to make final decision. 
•Apr. 13, 1994 — FCC construction permit expires. 
•Summer 1994-Const ruction begins on tower and radion station. 
•Fall 1 994-Const ruction to be completed for first broadcasts. 

We haven't received any complaints or negativity from 
anyone outside CLU," he added. 

The station is slated to go on the air Oct 20 at 88.3 on 
the FM dial. 

KCLU hires two new employees 

A program director/operations manager and a market- 
ing development director were hired to round out the 
leadership staff of KCLU, CLU's new FM. radio station 
that will premier Oct 20. 

Mike West, a former anchor and correspondent for 
several National Public Radio affiliates in Arizona, New 
Mexico and Washington, will serve as program director/ 
operations manager. Most recently, he has served as a 
program director of KTNN-AM in Window Rock, Ariz. 

Mary Olson, former national promotions director for 
Ticke tMasier in Los Angeles, will direct marking 
development She has been in charge of promotions and 
publicity for companies based in the Los Angeles area. 

Dan Kuntz, general manager of KCLU-FM, says, "I 
am extremely happy with the people who have decided 
to join our team. Mary and Mike's experience and their 
desire to provide full-service radio will help make 
KCLU a success." 

The station's studios at the MountClef residence hall 
fust floor are near completion. Featuring contemporary 
jazz, news and community programs, the NPR affiliate 
station will reach about 610,000 people from Thousand 
Oaks and Westlake Village to Ventura and Ojai. 

KCLU-FM will offer information on local cultural 
events and educational opportunities on campus and 
throughout the listening area.

Arts and Entertainment 


Sept. 7, 1994 

Performing Arts Center to open 

Thousand Oaks 
Plaza set for 
October gala 

The Civic Arts Plaza will open its doors 
during the Oct. 23 weekend, 24 years after 
the first phase of the City of Thousand 
Oaks General Plan was adopted and 30 
years after Thousand Oaks became a city. 
The Plaza, located at the intersection of 
Highway 101 and Route 23 north, will 
consist of the 1,800-seat Plaza auditorium 
and a 400-seat Forum Theatre. 

The facilities will serve more than 
2,000,000 persons living in the area from 
the San Fernando Valley to Santa Barbara. 

The Plaza will provide facilities for local, 
regional, national and international pre- 

Professional entertainment and cultural 
events will include contemporary , pop, and 
country-western music, classical sympho- 
nies, touring dance companies, Broadway 
musicals and plays, major singing stars and 

local talent. 

Entertainers such as comedians Bill 
Cosby and Steve Allen, singer/actresses 
Shirley Jones and Bernadette Peters and 
country/western singer Kenny Rogers are 
among the celebrities slated to perform at 
the Plaza. 

CLU will also benefit from the new build- 
ing as several drama productions will be 
staged at the Plaza. 

Michael Amdt, chair of the CLU drama 
department, expressed his enthusiasm for 
the new Theatre. 

"In a community like ours the impor- 
tance of a space for the performing arts is 
essential to the maintenance of the quality 
of life which those of us who live here 
constantly affirm," he said. 

Whole community benefits 

Elmer Ramsey, CLU professor emeritus 
and music director of the Conejo Sym- 
phony Orchestra, echoed Amdt's thoughts. 
"It will help the local users of this beautiful 
new auditorium by keeping the user fees 
down within their reach. The whole com- 
munity will benefit from the fact that this 



will also keep down ticket prices," he said. 
The 400-seat Forum will be used by 
smaller presenting organizations-commu- 
nity as well as professional. 

A place for productions 

It will house a modern stage and lighting 
system and will provide the community 
and local businesses with a place to stage 
film and lecture series, music, dance and 
dramatic productions. 
Tne Forum Theatre is a conversion from 
the 278-seat City Council Chamber into a 
fully equipped 400-seat Theatre. The multi- 
purpose design uses a lift-floor and seating 
wagons to achieve the transition from an 
assembly hall for public meetings into a 
theater with a variety of performer and 
audience configurations. 

The Forum will offer a fully equipped 
stage 32 feet deep and 64 feet wide, with a 
maximum proscenium opening of 40 feet 
wide and 22 feet wide. Two large fully 

equipped dressing rooms and aGreen Room 

will also be provided. 

The design and development of the Plaza 
evolved over the past decade form the 
recommendations of advisory citizens' 
committees established by the City Coun- 

In 1985, the Cultural Center planning 
Comm ittee studied the community ' s needs. 
Jungleland, a tourist attraction, had been 
on the the Plaza site during 1927-58. 

Smaller theatre Included 

In 1988 the "Jungleland" committee con- 
sidered uses for the former wild animal 
park and suggested: an auditorium, a park, 
and a conference center. After more than 
40 subcommittee meetings, they recom- 
mend the addition of a smaller theater to 
augment the auditorium. 

In 1989, the Thousand Oaks City Coun- 
cil the City Council selected Dworsky As- 
sociates of L.A. and Antione Predrock of 

Albuquerque to design the complex. 

The completion of the Civic Arts Plaza 
was the last unmet goal of the 1970 Thou- 
sand Oaks General Plan. 

Dr. Raymond Olson, president emeritus 
of CLU and chairman emeritus of the Alli- 
ance for the Arts, provided the theme for 
the Center of Attraction 2000 campaign. 

"It improves our community's abvility to 
bring good quality and variety into 
programming in this auditorium and theater, 
at inviting ticket prices," Olson says. 

Reflecting in his thoughts, he adds, 

We need a place 
We need a place 
Where we can perform 
We need a place 
We need a place 

Where we can simply come together and 
know who we are.. .And what we can do 
And what we can be this place.

Jonah Complex: 
CLU band sets 
their own tone 

No obligation to conform 
to standards or trends 


Staff Writer 

At a time when things like slick commercialism, 

shameless greed and selling out run rampant in the music 

industry , it is a refreshing change of pace to stumble upon 

a band whose members just love making music and feel 

no obligation to conform to any standards or trends that 
would inevitably limit their creative potential. 

It's even better when you can find a band like this in 
your own backyard. The Jonah Complex (formerly "The 
Lost Boys"), made up of three CLU students and one 
alum, is one such band. The nucleus of the group, senior 
Jordan Egertson and '94 graduate Tim Ward have been 
playing together since October 1992. Through the sug- 
gestion of mutual friend Scott Everetts, the two began 

They worked on some of Ward's songs with Egertson 
and Ward on vocals and guitars and with Everetts tem- 
porarily filling in on drums. The two found they shared 
similar tastes in acoustic music. "(Playing acoustic) is so 
natural to me, it's pure," Egertson says. 

Right on mark 

Early comparisons to the pair now make perfect sense 
when their influences are examined. "In the beginning, 
people said we sounded like John Cougar Mellencamp 
(Ward) and James Taylor (Egertson) getting together," 
he says. Considering that the distinctive finger picking 
guitar style of Taylor is one of Egertson's main influ- 
ences, and that Mellencamp's "Scarecrow" album is 
one of Ward's, these early comparisons prove to be 
right on the mark. 
*Tim was more formally trained than I was on the

guitar," says Egertson, who bypassed lessons and assimi- 
lated a style and technique from his early and current 
influences, a list that includes Cat Stevens, Kenny Loggins 
and the Indigo Girls. "Our styles are different," he says. 
"We have a huge mutual admiration for each other and 
(Tim) just blows me away." 

Egertson considers himself the artist of the two, with 
Ward taking on the role of the scientist, always wanting 
to try new things. "His lyrics are autobiographical and his 
songs have driving beats and rhythms," he says, adding 
that, "He relies more on a mood and power." Egertson's 
own songs are more poetic and observational in nature, 
but both of their lyrics revolve around three key concepts: 
search, celebration and discovery. 

The two found themselves growing very fasL Within 
two months they had already lined up a few on-campus 
gigs, playing in the Pederson quad, a few soccer parties, 
the Lip Sync and a one-off at the Casa Raya in Agoura 
Hills. For a brief period of time, senior Josh Green added 
his vocal talents, but then "volunteered to let us be 
ourselves and left," says 'Egertson, adding, "It was a very 
classy move." 

During the spring of '93, they began recording some 
original songs on Egertson's 4-track recorder. The first 
10 songs they had written were laid down during this 
session, and later a four-song demo tape was made that 

was circulated around the school to anyone who wished to 
hear it 

And during the 1993-94 school year, a few additions 
were made to the band thatresulted in today's line up. After 
they began playing the Need at the SUB during its opening 
months, senior Ramy Antoun was added on drums. 

Acoustic music favored 

Antoun, a self-taught musician who had been playing for 
16 years, lists his early influences as listening to Middle 
Eastern music, which his father produced and exposed him 
to as a child. Like Ward and Egertson, he favors acoustic 
music. "I like the basic feel to it," he says, but added that 
he would like to see Ward switch over to electric guitar and 
explore that potential. 

The solid percussion talents of Antoun added a fuller 
sound to Ward and Egertson's vocal harmonizing and dual 
guitar songs. "The good thing about Ramy was that he 
wasn't going to take over," Egertson says. "He just told us, 
4 Tell me what to play.'" 

For some support on the low notes, the band added 
Antoun 's friend Dustin Salveson on bass last spring. "He 
hadn't been playing that long, but he picked up the bass 
really fast," Egertson says. As a quartet, they began prac- 
ticing in the symphony room on campus, but as Egertson

Off The Record 

By Tim Pershing 
Sometimes Editor-in-Chief 

As I sat in our shiny new office over the summer 
contemplating the future of our little newspaper, 
only one thought crossed my mind. 


To be honest, I don't really know, but if I can still 
form complete sentences in four months, Til let you 

Let me assure you that "Editor-in-Chief sounds a 
lot more glamorous than it really is. 

Sure, I get to attend all the coolest parties, eat 
lunch with the Hollywood "in" crowd and receive 
free dental check-ups, but other than that it's hard 

I have been working in our office nearly every day 
since the Pleistocene era writing letters, scheduling 
appointments and cleaning up. (Well, I didn't do any 
real cleaning except wiping off our dry-erase board.) 

My only company was an occasional visit from the 

phone repair guy and dead rock-n-roll stars blasting 

from KLOS. 
But now, all that is past and our first edition is 


Recently, someone asked me what my goals are 
for the paper. 

"Goals?" I said. 

"Yeah, what do you want to do with the paper? 
What's its purpose?" he replied. 

(Heavy stuff for a guy who watches Three's 
Company for its social content.) 

I thought for a minute and answered. "You 
know, I just want it to be readable and believable. 
I want it to be a great publication, perhaps even 
award-winning. That's all. Oh, yeah, I want all the 
credit, too." 

Jack laughed as his best friend Larry 
asked if there was going to be a "Swingin' Singles 
Scene" in the paper. 

"I doubt it," I said. 

Seriously though, I do want you to feel as if you 
were writing along side our top-notch staff, 
brainstorming for ideas, searching for words all 
the while consuming vats of flat Diet Pepsi and 
miles of rock-hard Red Vines. 

Makes you want to run out and buy an AP 
Stylebook, doesn't it? 

I hope that the paper is to your liking, but if not, 
I encourage you to write in and tell us. That's how 
this process works, thoretically anyway. 

So feel free to applaud, criticize and scrutinize 
our efforts. I'll be doing the same to you. 

Just kidding. 

We are going to be trying some new things this 
semester. Some will work, some won't and I'm 
counting on you to tell me what you like and what 
you don't. 

If you would like to write us a letter, or stop by 
the office, please do as that will ensure your 
opinions will be heard and your suggestions will be 

And, if at times it seems like I don't know what 
I'm doing, it's probably because I don't. 

Have a great semester and I'll see you in two

CLU Moving in Right Direction 

After a summer in the mountains, I returned to CLU 
to see some positive changes happening. The summer 
months brought to us a newly renovated SUB, a new 
phone system, relocated offices, an FM radio station, 
and a campus wide computer network. I was excited to 
see that improvements were finally being completed 
and not just talked about. The changes around campus 
have helped to start this school year on a positive note. 
A note that can hopefully carry the ripple of change 
throughout the entire year. The excitement of these 
changes was soon tarnished however, even the 
improvements could not stand up to the voices of those 
who wanted more. Students asking, "Why was it done 
this way?," or "Why wasn't it done in this manner?" 

The students, faculty, and administration, who voice 
these options all to often go unheard. This year 
however, the ASCLU Senate would also like to see 
this change. Just as the whole CLU campus and 
community moves in a more affirmative direction, so 
is the Senate with a majority of new, exciting goals. 
My personal goals though for the upcoming year

Volunteer Center offers 
students rare opportunity 

"It is not enough to be busy; so are the ants. The 
question is: What are we busy about?" 

Classes have started, clubs are being organized and 
most of us are quickly heading towards that cliff 
which leads to the canyon of the point of no return. In 
only one weekend we are struggling to keep up with 
assignments, worrying about the report due at the end 
of the semester, and stressing about how to fit all of 
our other activities into a tightly packed schedule. 
Before everyone takes that leap over the cliff and into 
the deep dark canyon, maybe we should come to a 
stop, let the dust settle, and take a look around. 

Delving deeper one finds a world in which the 
negative commonly outweighs the positive. Even if 
this is not the case, the attitudes of those living in this 
world make it seem so. 

The University Volunteer Center offers the opportu- 
nity to make a difference. Volunteer positions are 
available on campus, locally, nationally, and interna- 
tionally. One can volunteer through their major or just 
for the sake of the experience. 

As all of us continue on into the school year, please 
do not lose sight of what it is we are trying to accom- 
plish. Whether it be through athletics, academics, 
clubs, or other means, remember what it is we are 
"busy about." If we do not, Thoreau was correct when 
he compared us to ants; and ants I am afraid, are 
easily stepped on. 

Nicole Whiimarsh (x3488) is the UVC Coordinator

Being back on campus has filled me with excitement 
and has given me motivation for this new year. I am 
excited about what has happened so far, but am looking 
forward to the obstacles and challenges ahead of us. 
Jonathan Kozol once said, "Pick battles big enough to 
matter, small enough to win." Hopefully the battles 
ahead of us will be won.

The new lineup began playing open mic nights at Lose 
the Blues, a coffeehouse in Agoura Hills. Once their 
popularity increased and their potential was recognized, 
they were given their own headlining night and played 
there roughly once every three weeks. During the 1994 
summer, the band played a few local gigs, but with each 
member living in a different city, rehearsal time was 
limited to once before each show. 

The band plans to continue playing locally, though they 
prefer gigs away from CLU. "We don't want to play on 
campus that much because we don't want people to get 
sick of us," Egertson says. Some thought by the group has 
been given io paying some clubs in santa Barbara, "we 
would love to gei a chance to crank it up," he aaas. 

In a band where you would be hard pressed to find 
anyone with a huge ego, and where the only source of 
tension — if you can even call it that — is deciding what 
cover songs to include in the set list, a special bond exists. 
One key element necessary for the ongoing existence of 
the group is that all four members are having fun playing 
with people they consider good friends. 

Regarding the symbiotic relationship between himself 
and Ward that began almost two years ago and still is going 
to this day, Egertson had simply this to say, "There is 
nothing we can't do. I plan on making my living doing 
this." Ward says, "This is not just for fun for college." 

That kind of attitude, combined with the collective 
wealth of talent known as the Jonah Complex, can only 
assure continued success.

game of pool, to the 
"Chiquita Banana 
Rendezvous," fresman had 
plenty of opportunities to 
forget about their 
troubles, make new 
friends, and have fun. 

In fact, some have had so 
much fun that they've 
almost forgotten their 
classes, which can be 
detrimental to the pupose 
of the college experience 
which is education. So to 
all college students, 
freshmen especially, 
remember that you do 
have that early morning 
class, but also remember 
to get out of your room 
when the walls start to 
close in on you.

CLU Kingsmen pigskin team 
looking for super '94 season 

Last year's 5-4 record 
gives many returnees 
momentum to build on 


Sports Editor 

It's the fall of a new school year and that can mean only 
one thing — it's time to strap on the helmets and dive into 
a new CLU football season. 
After posting an impressive 5-4 record last season, which 
resulted in their first above .500 season since 1985 and a 
third place finish in Southern California Intercollegiate 
Athletic Conference, the Kingsmen are primed and ready 
for a strong year Division III NCAA play. 

The team, which opens on Sept 17 at Claremont-Mudd- 
Scripps at 1 p.m ., is led by head coach Joe Harper. He is best 
known for leading Cal Poly SLO to a national champion- 
ship in the early '80s and is now entering his fifth year as 
the CLU skipper. 

Although his 15-23 record at CLU seems unimpressive 
to some, his overall of 132-87-4 over 22 seasons is more 
indicative of his coaching success and prowess. 

Despite the loss of some fine players, including line- 
backer Cory Undlin (now a coach) and quarterback Adam 
Hacker, Harper seems to have the Kingsmen headed in the 
right direction. 

"I think we're fairly well on track in terms of integrating 
the new players into the program and maintaining the status 
of the returning players ," he says. 

*The focus from here one is preparing for Claremont 
colleges game. The lineups are not set yet" as some players 
are "competing in some of the positions," but he says, 
"overall, the depth is better than in the past years." 

Looking at the CMS Stags' game. Harper says, "We're 
taking up where we left off last year." CLU ended the 
season against the Stags with a home 44-9 victory to stretch 
its win record over CMS to 20-2-1 dating back to 1962. 

"They were a young team with an outstanding quarter- 
back (John Shipp) who was total offense leader of the 
conference," Harper says. "I anticipate they will be signifi- 
cantly improved on defense." 

Leading the offense for CLU will be sophomore quarter-

back Ryan Huisenga. Kingsmen fans will be in for a treat 
when the fleet-footed thrower takes the field. 

His strong arm, scrambling ability, and leadership capa- 
bilities have impressed coaches in the past Last year he 
threw for 1 88 yards and one TD, while completing 1 8 of 33 

Zack Hernandez will be backing up Huisenga. 

The running game is solidly in tact with four proven 
returnees. Senior Steve Roussell figures to get most of the 
work. The three-year letterman carried the ball 128 times 
last year for 534 yards and 8 TD's. 

Terrance Thomas (53 carries, 151 yards) will be ex- 
pected to step up and provide depth for the halfback 
position. The fullback position looks strong again with 
Ivan Moreno returning for his third season. 

His power and strength are highlighted by his knack to 
run over and through his opponents. Jason Higbee, a senior 
from Bakersfield, showed dramatic improvement over the 
course of last season. He will probably see some playing 
time behind Moreno. 

The receiving corps was depleted when starters Pete 

Marine and Rob Caufield (who had 90 catches between 
them last year) left due to graduation. Marine was a First 
Team All-SCIAC selection and will be missed tremen- 
dously, especially since he still had a year of eligibility left 
Big shoes are to be filled at the two wide receiver spots on 
the '94 squad. 

The defense, headed by defensive coordinator Bryan 
Marmion, could open some eyes in the SCIAC. They will 
be led by two preseason Ail-Americans in linebackers 
Lance Martin and Chris Peltonen. The two will provide 
some devastating hits and a physical presence which will 
put fear in many receivers going over the middle. 

The defensive line may be a true force on the team this 
year. Senior Erik Lundring, and juniors Mario Guerrero 
and Tyler Blackmore (who is coming back from a serious 
knee injury suffered in the first game of the season last 
year) have the talent to dominate a game. 

The secondary has returnees in safeties David Harris and 
Mark Stewart, and comerbacks Chad Valousky and James 
Mason. They will be tested often in the early season to see 
how good they really are.

Men working to improve on 
last year's 15-game win record 


Staff Writer 

The Cal Lutheran man's soccer team opened the season 
on Saturday afternoon with a 3-0 loss to Azusa-Pacific 
University. The loss by the rebuilding Kingsmen came at 
the hands of a tough Azusa squad that dominated the ball 
and prevented them from putting together many scoring 

The Kingsmen, coming off a 1 5-4-2 season that resulted 
in a number fifteen national record, have lost all eleven 
starters from last year. Consequently, this year's team is 
young and has had minimal experience working with each 
other thus far. However, it is a talented team that should 
provide some excitement offensively as the season goes 
along. According to sophomore sweeper Ryan Dobbins 
"We just have to learn to play together." 

Coach Dan Kuntz is very positive and has high expec- 
tations for his team. "When we get more game-fit and 
organized and move toward conference, we'll do very 
well," he said. He expects tough competition from wuhin 
the Southern California Athletic Conference, especially 
Claremont and Pomona. 

As one would expect from a young squad, inexperience 
could prove to be a weakness. "We'll evolve in some 
leadership roles," Kuntz said. Dobbins is the captain of

Women anticipate strong core 
of returnees will carry team 


Staff Writer 

With a good core of returning players and the addition of 
several new freshmen and transfer students, the CLU 
Women ' s soccer team looks to be a competitive force in the 
Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference 
again this year. 

Regals coach Dan Kuntz is optimistic about the teams 
chances this season. 

"The team is very unified. They share play and are closer 
than they have ever been before. We should do very well 
this season," Kuntz says. 

Returning players Car la Crawford, Jill Gal legos and Jodi 
Larson will provide the offensive spark for the Regals 
while Shelley Burgess and goalkeeper Amy Walz will be 
mainstays on defense. 

Newcomers, Emily Kanney and Lara Heifner, along with 
freshmen Kim Holeman and Laura Corsi will provide the 
team with a fresh look and plenty of enthusiasm. 

The combination of leadership and youth will come in

The goals for this year's squad are very simple, Kuntz 

" Our goals are to have a positive attitude, demonstrate 
the highest of character, and achieve to our potential in 
overall team play." 

On Saturday, the Regals openeo up their season with a 
tough loss to Azusa Pacific University, 1-0. 
The contest showcased two evenly matched teams which 

for most of the game were unable to successfully penetrate 
each others defense. 

Midfielders Jill Gallegos and Margaret Vestal were giv- 
ing the APU defense the fits the whole afternoon, but were 
unable to net a goal. 

The Cal Lu defense played an inspired game coming up 
with many timely saves. 

The only goal of the match came in the 88th minute, on 
a shot from about 25 yards which just cleared the out- 
stretched hand of goalkeeper Amy Walz. 

The Regals return to action Saturday at The Master's 
College beginning at 1 p.m.

JV Soccer team 
opens with tie 

Memorable game for fans 

Editor in Chief 

The CLU men's junior varsity squad net- 
ted a 2-2 tie in thier opening home game on 
Sunday against South Mountain Junior 
College of Arizona. Jeff Vanfleetand Dustin 
Magdeleno scored the goals for CLU in the 
first and second halves, respectively. 

The game turned out to be one of the most 
memorable in recent memory as the team, 
comprised mostly of freshman and trans- 
fers, displayed a sense of confidence and 
poise usually reserved for older, more ex- 
perienced players. 

The team was led by senior Dustin 
Magdeleno who provided the necessary 
toughness needed to compete at the colle- 
giate level. 

His teammates seemed to follow his ex- 
ample as they stifled the faster, mored skilled 
offensive attacks of the men from Phoenix. 
The defense seemed to scrambled at times 
to find their shape but never lost their com- 

The offense received a boost from the 
midfielders who fed the forwards with long 
crossing passes, crisp through balls and 
quick transitions which left the visiting 
team 's defense at times checking theirshorts. 
Sophomore forward Rico Yovanovich 
had one of the best chances in the first half 

with a solid half-volley 1 5 yards outbut was 
denied by the opposing keeper who smoth- 
ered the ball into the turf.

CLU's first 
president dies 


Staff Writer 

The whole CLU campus mourned upon 
hearing that Dr. Orvillc Dahl, the first prcsi- 
dentof California Lutheran, died Sept. 1 1 in 
Carmichael. He was 84 years old. 

Dr. Luther Lucdtke, CLU president, said, 
" Dr. Dahl was a man of extraordinary faith, 
courage, and leadership who envisioned a 
great institution of Christian higher educa- 
tion where others saw only chicken coops 
and fields of din. 

"We are eternally indebted to him, and his 
passing ends an era in the establishment of 
California Lutheran University. He will be 
sorely missed." 

Ethel Beyer, who served as an adminis- 
tration assistant to Dahl for nearly 30 years, 
said, " He was a very special person and did 
many things for thecollegeand his friends." 

Dr. Dahl was born in Dululh, Minn., on 
May 18, 1910, and graduated from St. Olaf 
College with honors in 1935 with degrees in 
political science, history and education. 

After graduating, he remained at St. Olaf 
to coach football. During World War II, he 
was an executive officer and commander in 
the U.S. Navy, training college units at 

He latter attended the University of Cali- 
fornia at Berkely, University of Minessota 
and Columbia to earn his masters and 
doctrate in education. 

He became Cal Lutheran's first president 
in 1961 and served the college until 1962. 

Dr. Dahl was instrumental in almost ev- 
ery aspect of the university's early days 
while serving as president. He was respon- 
sible for the design of the swimming pool, 
which he created for people who would 
come to the college campus after church. 
He also inspired the Fellows program 
which helped the school accumulate assets 
without alumni. 

The first 25-membcr Board of Regents 
also convened under his direction and 
elected Dahl as Cal Lu's first president. 

The college seal and motto arc also lega- 
cies left by Dr. Dahl. as he and John 
Ellingboe wrote the words, "Love of Christ, 
Truth and freedom." 

Dr. Dahl is survivedby his wife Jean Dahl, 
four children — Orin, Lconorc, Elizabeth 
and Richard, nine grandchildren, and seven 
great grandchildren. 

Dr. Dahl's funeral was held on Sept. 15 
at St. Michael's Episcopal Church in 
Carmichael. CLU has started a fund in his 
memory. Letters may be sent to Jean Dahl 
at 4616 Emdee Court, Sacramento 95821.

Fall semester series lectures focus on 
ways to Nurture a Civil Community 

Staff Writer 

CLU's Preus-Brandt Forum kicked off 
the school year this month with a series of 
talks with the theme "Nurturing a Civil 

Featured speakers included Dr. Stephanie 
Taylor-Dinwiddie from USC, and Drs. 
Everson, Gooch and Kuehnel from CLU. 
On September 12, Dr Dinwiddie discussed 
nurturing a civil community pertaining to 
the cultivation of hope for Los Angeles. 
The faculty panel based their perspectives 
on Lord Of The Flies on Monday. 

Although both lectures approached the 
same subject from different angles and had 
a different focus in terms of both space and 
time, comparisons between Los Angeles 
and Coral Island were drawn to bring to the 
surface the declination of both societies. 

Dr. Dinwiddie stressed that it is crucial 
for everyone to understand differences and 
grasp the concept of civil harmony. 

"People get so uncomfortable with the 
idea of recognizing that people are differ- 
ent. I am an African-American female. 
That makes me different from the people

LECTURE : Keys to a civil community probed 

Continued from page 1 

who sit in front of me today ... however, just 
because I am different does not mean you 
can put me in a box. You don't know 
enough about me." 

She further asked people to go deeper 
into themselves to "find out what it means 
personally for us to start stressing balance. 
We have to start recognizing the fact that all 
of us, as individuals, can make a differ- 

The key to a civil community she said, 
starts in three places - at home, in school, 
and within ourselves. 

She is currently involved in a project to 
further thiscause. Part of it includes helping 
and providing comprehensive social and 
health services for inner city families and 


"If the parents do not have the education, 
the background or experience to provide for 
their children's needs, then it is incumbent 
upon us, as professionals, to empower the 
parents who will, in lum, empower their 
children ... we have to start at home." 

School a major influence 

The second major influence, Dinwiddie 
said, comes from school. If one thinks that 
college students are exempt from this 
reponsibilily, they should think again, she 
said. The university structure worries 
Dinwiddie. "People [in colleges] are very 
concerned of their own turf, and all kinds of 
things are going on in their own private 

But Dinwiddie stressed that in the pro- 
fessional world, people do not work in 
isolation and she feels that is an important 
thing for college students to understand. 
Part of her work in this area involves bring- 




ing students of different disciplines and 
departments together for them to leam how 
to work together as a group. This, she 
contended, will definitely have a resonance 
on larger society. 

"We do not exist in an ivory lower set 
aside and isolated from people. We have to 
be out there too. We cannot be afraid of 
getting our hands dirty," stated Dinwiddie. 

Becoming open, civil important 

But first, people must overcome per- 
sonal prejudices and appreciate each other's 
differences. It docs not mean that our sys- 
tem and our value structure will change but 
we do have to become more open and civil. 

The speaker said, "I understand that it is 
very difficult to remove biases, but the 
starting place is the willingness to look at 
ourselves honestly." 

And that means everybody, whatever 
their histories may be. 

"The most important thing to walk away 
with from here today," she concluded, " is 
the idea that each of us has a responsibility, 
first and foremost, to care for the global 
community and to understand and respect 
the differences of the people that make up 
that mass community." 

However, in "Lord of the Flies," mutual 
respect for differences and care for a mass 
community are almost a myth more than a 
reality for the boys in Coral Island. In the 
epilogue to his classic 1954 novel, author 
William Golding himself revealed the pur- 
pose of his work as being a "classic explo- 
ration into realities of human nature." 

In a panel discussion Monday, three 
CLU professors offered their own interpre- 
tations and readings into the novel. Dr. Joe 
Everson, chair of the Psychology Depart- 
ment, delved into the psychological frames 
of the characters in the book; while Dr. 
Herb Gooch, from the political science de- 

partment, superimposed his political view- 
points with the story. Finally, Dr. 
JulicKuchnel, who headed the discussion, 
took a religious approach to it. 

According to them, conflict is an ongo- 
ing theme throughout the novel. It is also a 
reflection on real life violence in the larger 
society today. But what gives rise to this 
conflict? According to the professors, it is 
human nature. 

Tackling the subject from a psychologi- 
cal perspective, Everson explained that 
Golding's philosophy was notmuch further 
from Freud's. Like Freud, Golding was 
very much influenced by World War II, 
which played up the negative aspects of 
man. Both 'visionaries' saw human nature 
as basically "animalistic." Theories on the 
development of the "id," the "ego" and 
"superego" were also quoted. 

In accord with Dinwiddie's suggestions 
about the importance of the home, the school 
and ourselves, Everson acknowledged that 
our "animal-like instincts [can only be] 
kept in check when we develop as the result 
of civilization, the result of society, of our 
parents telling us what to do and don't, and 
the resultof religious upbringing that teaches 
us right from wrong." 

Political viewpoint questioned 

Gooch, on the other hand, questioned the 
political viewpoint of Golding and the sig- 
nificance of the "beast." Golding, he said, 
was, "profoundly politically disillusioned" 
at the time he wrote the book. Probably like 
many other writers of that lime, Golding 
acknowledged the fact thatpower, together 
with weakness and freedom, corrupts. It is 
implied in his novel that civility among 
human creatures is in a sense, unnatural. 
However, at the same time, he also recog- 
nized the necessity to sustain civility. But in 

doing that, we practice what is called re- 

"Human character, like social structure," 
Gooch said, "is a stable enterprise founded 
upon repression." 

No mention of God in novel 

Kuehnel then rounded off the discussion 
by offering his own interpretations. Even 
though there was no mention of God any- 
where in the novel, he said that Lord Of the 
Flies is "an intensely religious novel." 

Drawing comparisons to Genesis, he con- 
tended mat both pieces of literature consist 
of commentaries on human nature. Fear, 
envy, and murder. As with the characters in 
the Genesis story, human beings arc ca- 
pable of good as well as "tremendous evil." 

Kuehnel further drew conclusions to the 
similarity between a passage in the novel to 

our experiences in real life. The education 
of the university, he said, is largely an 
exploration into the mysteries of the world 
around us. 

Like Dinwiddie's lecture the week be- 
fore, people must not be afraid to unravel 
these mysteries. Everyone must take the 
initiative to recognize the fact that society 
does not revolve around them alone. There 
is a larger society out there and everyone is 
affected by it. People should overcome 
prejudices and fears of learning about people 
who are differentt and have the courage to 
look deeper into oneself. 

Be it Coral Island in the '50s or present 
day Los Angeles, the world, is a mystery. 
Conflict is inevitable and innocence has not 
always been a big part of human nature 
since the days of Adam and Eve. The im- 
portant thing then is to come to terms with 
the individual sell , animalistic or repressed. 
Once that is done, nurturing a civil commu- 
nity need not be such a far-flung idea after

Wold said that while it is clearly mo- 
mentous that CLU has been picked to be 
part of this project, it also involves a mas- 
sive amount of work. 

"We have to do a lot of research into the 
files and to the decisions that were made 
previously [in CLU history]. There are a 
lot of reading of different books and mate- 
rials, and we have to do a lot of interviews 
of people who have been concerned with 
the college, and people who were here and 

understand the progress of this college." 

Included under that umbrella are stu- 
dents, alumni, administrators, teachers and 
faculties. Their research will also include 
reviewing decisions made by the school's 
various presidents, Board of Regents and 
even the studying of student publications. 

All these findings and writings, she 
said, will then be compressed into 20 pages 
(one chapter), submitted and then sent to 
press, along with writings from the other 
colleges sometime next June. 

The staff of The Echo welomcs comments on

Searle to address Stoner Clark 
audience at chapel on Oct. 24 

The 10th annual Harold Stoner Clark Lectures will be Oct. 24 at 10 
a.m. and 8 p.m. with Dr. John Searle, Mills professor of philosophy of 
mind and language at UC Berkeley. 

In 1994 Searle was the Rcith Lecturer on BBC, and has appeared 
frequently on United States TV. The debate over the capacity of 
computers to replicate human thinking, knowing and awareness is his 

He will present "Cognition and Cognitive Science" during the 
morning program and "The Problem of Consciousness" at the evening 
program. Both programs will be at Samuclson Chapel. The lectures are 
free of charge and open to the public. 

Lectures are presented made possible by the Harold Stoner Clark 
Endowment. The series is sponsored by the CLU philosophy depart- 

t pays to advertise in The Echo 

In conjunction with the Lutheran chap- 
ters (S l. Olaf being the other Lutheran insti- 
tution), Dr. George Forell, from the Univer- 
sity of Iowa, will contribute a 20-page theo- 
logical essay on Lutheran faith itself. 

This project seeks to enhance the ability 
of Christian institutions of higher learning 
to more effectively integrate their religious 
and academic vocations. 

"What we're going to do is try to see how 
our relatedness to the Luheran Church bal- 
ances with our academic goals and achieve- 
ments," said Wold. 

"The general concern here is that some 
schools in the U.S. have started out as 
church-related or christian, but have since 
found itexpedient to dropall relations to the 
church body in order to futhcr academic 

"For the Lutheran Church, however, I 
believe the two can progress together and 
walk in an integrated fashion."

For the Record 

Several items listed in the column, "You 
Might be a Redneck..." in the Sept. 7 issue 
were originally composed by comedian 
Jeff Foxwonhy. 

The Echo will publish corrections in this 
column when they are brought to the at- 
tention of the staff. To have a "For the 
Record" printed, readers should type the 
correction and send it in care of The Echo 
by Friday the week prior to publication.

University President 

President's column : 

CLU-- 'building 
a field of dreams' 

I want to compliment 
The Echo editor Tim 
Pershing and his staff, 
ASCLU President Mark 
Schoenbeck and fellow 
officers, and the CLU stu- 
dent body at large for 
starting the year on a 
beautiful chord. The new 
layout of The Echo mir- 
rors the many develop- 
ments and initiatives 
across campus, several of 
which were covered in the 
Sept. 7 issue, that arc mak- 
ing California Lutheran 
University an even more exciting place to live and study. 
I particularly appreciate the emphasis our student lead- 
ership is giving to campus community on weekends. 
Because we are so accessible to the attractions of Los 
Angeles, the ocean and mountains, and because so many 
CLU students are within driving distance of home, there 
is a natural tendency to look elsewhere for life and 
entertainment Friday through Sunday. For a time, our new 
students naturally turn back to their old friends, who are 
themselves striking out in different directions. 

Without discounting the other allures of our area, we 
want the CLU campus to be your first choice for weekend 
as well as weekday activities — a magnetic, dynamic, 
lively, challenging place. I want to see the lights on and 
parking lots full every day of the week. 

I was delighted to spend a couple of hours last Wednes- 
day evening (Sept. 7), with R.A. Allison Pilmer and 30 
first-year students getting acquainted in the Mount Clef 
Lounge. One of the questions put to me was "what new 
traditions" I could suggest to enhance campus life. 

We certainly are not lacking in extracurricular and club 
activities. I am always impressed by the number of our 
intercollegiate and intramural sports teams, drama and 
music productions, debate, forensic and publication groups, 
student government and volunteer opportunities. For an 
institution our size, we have a very large number of 
student groups and an extraordinary level of enthusiastic 
participants. CLU students are busy. But what makes it all 
come together? 
I have a few suggestions. 

One is a new emphasis on spectator ship. Just as great 
students make great teachers, so too great audiences make 
great performers. Fill the gym and stadium for sporting 
events. Fill the Black Box(Little Theatre) and Preus- 
BrandtForum for campus speakers and drama events. Fill 
the Chapel not only for Academic Convocation and our 
Christmas Celebration but for Wednesday Chapel and 
weekly recitals. Hang out in the SUB and library. 

These are all part of your college experience, and 
nowhere else in life will you find such a rich, whole world 
of experience at your fingertips (and mostly/ree). Get the 
campus cultural calendar, watch announcements in The 
Echo, and book your campus activities/Irsf — before look- 
ing elsewhere. 

Especially, commit yourself to me all-campus lecture 
series and chapel services that are held each Monday and 
Wednesday, 10-11 a.m. Both residential and commuting 
students should write them into the weekly schedule just 
as firmly as your classes in English or biology or account- 
ing. We do not schedule classes during this "sacred time" 
nor allow office hours. Most of our offices are closed so 
that all of us, faculty and administration as well as stu- 
dents, can participate. 

The theme for this year's Monday forum series is 
"Nurturing a Civil Community." Behind that rather seri- 
ous-sounding title is a quest for the same kind of spirit and 
celebration that the ASCLU and student body are talking 
We are building a "field of dreams" at CLU. Just come.

Be part of the Morning Glory 


As you probably already know, the Morning Glory is 
CLU's award-winning literary and artistic magazine. 
What you may not know is that the Morning Glory 
contains work other than that done by students in the 
English and art departments. 

In fact, the majority of the contributions are form a very 
diverse spectrum of departments: math, accounting, sci- 
ence, computer science, communication arts and many 

We also accept work from faculty and staff. Last year's 
issue included the work of Dr. Lyle Sladek (emeritus 
professor of math) and Beverly Kemmerling (director of 
Health Services). 

What we need is your help. The Morning Glory is only 
as good as CLU's contributions. The deadline for turning 
in items if the first week of February 1995, but we need 
people to start thinking about it now so they will have time 
to create new pieces or rewark old ones. 

We accept all artwork. If a student wants to turn in a 
large piece or a three-dimensional piece like sculpture, 
the person should take a picture of it and send it in when 
the time comes. 

We also accept every kind of literature: short stories, 
one-acts, poetry, vignettes, monologues, etc. 

Again, the deadline is not until the beginning of Febru- 
ary, but we would like everyone to be aware that their 
contributions are welcome and encouraged. Thank you 
for your help.

New improvements to the SUB 


The mailroom/SUB has been rated awesome by both 
new and returning students. There have been many good 
compliments about the newly renovated Student Union 
Building. The popular statement I have heard is that it's a 
central place to see people. I like how you can go into a 
clean place to get your mail. They have really cleaned up 
the SUB. The TV room is a great idea and looks great. 

The mailroom really works. You get your packages 
much more conveniently. All you do is go to the office, 
and hand them your slip. You don't need to hike across 
campus from your dorm only to get there and find out that 
the mailroom is closed. The workers appear to be much 

With all the flyers we receive in our mail box, it is a great 
idea that there are recycling bins for paper in the SUB. 
This cuts down on the amount of flyers that may very well 
end up scattered on the floor. It also helps the environ- 

I enjoy being able to go to the SUB and see commuter 
students who I usually only see in class. I have heard from 
many of these off campus students that they feel more 
attached to campus life by receiving mail on campus. 
There is more of a feeling of connection. 

Overall, the mailroom/SUB has been a great asset to the 
CLU community. I would like to personally thank all the 
people who helped to make the new mailroom and 
renovated SUB a reality.

Sept. 21, 1994 


In a time when most universities are cutting 
funding for school programs, reducing classes to 
the bare minimum and streamlining the aca- 
demic and social aspects of student's lives to the 
most basic activities, it is refreshing to see CLU 
striving to create an environment that benefits 
first and foremost the students. 

For a long while the university's leader had 
been promising changes that would give the 
students more opportunities and increased expo- 
sure to new technologies that would enhance the 
quality of education received at CLU. But all too 
often these promises were never fullfilled. 

But with the introduction of an almost entirely 
new administration within the last two years, the 
spirit of the school seems to have changed along 
with it. 

And now as the university enters its third decade 
of existence, real progress is being made. 

With the remodeled Student Union Building, 
the advent of voice-mail capabilities, our own 
professional radio station, the implementation of 
the campus-wide computer network and a re- 
newed energy radiating from key university offi- 
cials, the students of CLU now have the opportu- 
nity to experience much more than any previous 

To many freshman and transfers the changes 
have probably gone unnoticed. But for people 
who have been here for more than two years, the 
changes represent a significant departure from 
years past. 

The university should feel proud of its newest 
and boldest attempts to remain on a level consis- 
tent with other schools not only in SCIAC but in 
the nation. Hopefully the school will reamin in 
this mode for some time to come for more changes 
are needed to compliment the fine start of the 
administation, faculty and students. 

The freshman blues 


Contributing Writers 

As freshmen leaving home for the first time, Mario and I 
experienced homesickness. The first day we were here, we 
met by seeing each other through the bathroom which adjoins 
our two rooms in Mt. Clef. 

"Hi. What's your name?" Mario asked me. 

"I'm Mia. Where are you from?" Mario answered me and 
then asked me the same question. After our conversation, we 
went back into our rooms. I sat on my bed writing letters to 
whoever I could think of. Mario talked on the phone to try to 
get a little feeling of home. 

"Sooner or later you're going to have to mingle," said Bret- 
Jordan, the resident assistant, for my loud Ml Clef hall. 

"I know I'm just tired." The truth was that I didn't know 
who to mingle with. I didn't know anyone. Little did I know 
that Mario was just across the way feeling the exact same 

After a few days, Mario and I got to know each other and 
now we couldn't be belter friends. Everyday we go out and 
meet new people; whether it's over a cigarette in the parking 
lot or taking our laundry across Mt. Clef because the dryers 
are broken. (Which, by the way, are all very good ways of 
meeting people.) 

We don't feel the least bit homesick now. There is no secret 
to overcoming homesickness. Everyone experiences it and 
everyone has their own way of dealing with it. 

Too many questions 


Contributing Writer 

The other day I was baby-silting my 6 year old mon- 
ster, I mean niece, and she walked up to me as I sat in a 
chair intellectualizing over "Married wilh Children" and 
said she wanted to ask me a question. "Sal," she said, "If 
heat rises and they're closer to the sun, how come it's 
colder in the mountains?" 

I didn't know the answer. After 20 years of life and 16 
years of schooling, I was stumped by the question of a 6 
year old. 

I ventured to think about what else this Cal Lutheran 
sophomore didn't know. It was depressing. I had been so 
arrogant, believing that I was wealth of knowledge. I 
buried myself in an avalanche of questions that I could 
not answer. I wondered: Why do they call a tutu a tutu if 
there's only one of them? What do they pack Slyrofoam 
in? If Pepsi's the choice of a new generation, why do all 
of my friends drink vodka? 

What do I know that really matters? How many licks 
does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop? I want 

to know. Was that Julia Roberts or a body double in Pretty 

I never realized how many of the worlds most basic 
puzzles were beyond my power to solve. Screw the con- 
struction on the pyramids, I want to know how Bon Jovi 
achieved musical super stardom or what kind of severe 
electrocution caused Michael Bolton's hair style. Hey if I 
offended any Bon Jovi or Michael Bolton fans, I'm sorry 
that you're fans. 

I want to know why the food in the cafeteria looks like its 
more afraid of me than I am of i l 

How can I live my life in search of ultimate enlighten- 
ment when I'm worried about what causes those yellow 
stains in the armpits of white T-shirts? 

After intense contemplation, I came to the frightening yet 
somehow comforting realization that I probably will never 
know the answer to such jeopardyesque questions as, 
"How do they get the filling into a twinkie?" But I did come 
up with a way of dealing with them. 

When confronted by a question that neither you nor any 
rational human being would know the answer to, do what 
I did with my little niece. Make something up. 

"It's colder in the mountains 'cause that's where they 
make ice cream."

Improv — Always 
quick on their feet 

Arts & Entertainment Editor 

It has been said that making people laugh is difficult 
work and that being funny is no laughing matter. It takes 
more than a few good one-liners to be funny, its a business 
of serious work. Even the top headliners in major comedy 
clubs and on television had to practice their skits some- 
where, and more likely than not, they practiced with an 
improvisalional group not unlike the one found in the CLU 
drama department 

"Improv is short for improvisation and it is a term used 
for spontaneous acting comedy," said senior and Improv 
member Brian Harper. 

The group is directed by CLU alum Kevin Kern. The 
Improv, which was first initiated as a class in 1990, had 
previously been directed by Ken Gardner, chair of the 
drama department. However, this semester the group was 
placed under the direction of Kern. 

The Improv is comprised of 10 CLU students, all of 
different majors from psychology to biology to drama. "It 
is open to anyone and you don't have to be a drama major 
to join," Kern said. 

Kem also said that they are always looking for people 
who are not afraid and are able to be creative adding that, 
"Our goal is to entertain and mat's what we're here to do." 
'^Rehearsal is an hour to play games, be ourselves, 
release some stress, and just have fun." Harper said. "Its 
great especially for performers because it leaches us to 
think quickly on our fee i. It gives us the opportunity to be 
who we want to be," he said. 

"Another goal is to make the drama department as 
visible as possible on campus and with the community." 
said Kem. "We want them to know of CLU for more 
than their sports." 

Though they rehearse at what could arguably be one 
of the smallest and darkest rooms at CLU, the group 
nevertheless strives to one day perform on Broadway. 

And one never knows, the day may come when you 
happen to see the next Jerry Seinfeld and you will 
remember him from the Improv days at CLU. 
The group's plans are to perform once a month at CLU 
in addition to doing two or three workshops and perfor- 
mances in Thousand Oaks and Newbury Park 
High Schools. Their plans also include performing at 
Lose the Blues coffeehouse in Augora Hills. Their next 
CLU performance will be sometime within the first two 
weeks of October. 

Anyone interested can join. Rehearsals are every 
Thursday at 5:30p.m. in the Little Theater or Forum. 

CLU Choir and Band ready 
for first performances 

Musicians to entertain audiences with wide 
variety of music including jazz and big band 


Staff Writer 

The CLU concert band and jazz band, both under 
the direction of Dr. Dan Geeiing, are looking forward to 
presenting their wide range of talent to both the school and 
community this year. A music professor for ten years at 
CLU, Dr. Geeting says that there are a few things he is 
planning differently for the bands this year. 

44 We are working on a year-long tentative project to do 
an April concert at the Reagan library (in Simi Valley)," 
he said, adding, "The acoustics there are quite nice." 

If everything goes as planned, the concert band will play 
the first half of the performance, followed by the jazz 
band, which will hopefully feature the singing of Frank 
Sinatra Jr. 

Geeting would also like to see both of the bands eventu- 
ally play the new Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza, some- 
thing they will be unable to do this year but are working on 

for next year. 

"In the future we will hopefully play there once a year 
beginning next year," he said optimistically. 

The first formal performance of both bands this year 
will take place on November 1 6 in the gym . The concert 
band will lead, followed by the jazz band, which will be 
performing the works of Benny Goodman , Harry James, 
and Tommy Dorsey in a tribute to the greats of the Big 
Band/Swing era. "The jazz band takes a histrorical 
approach as opposed to stuff that is hot right now," 
Geeting said. 

"When most (college) jazz bands do the old stuff, they 
tend to give it a rock tinge," he added. 

Teh bands themselves consist of quite an eclectic mix. 
Of the 45 members in the concert band, only half are 
CLU students. The remaining members are made up of 
community . The same ratio holds true for the jazz band, 
which currently has 17 musicians. "The community 
members (who range in age from 25 to 70) show 
students the value of playing," Geeting said. 

He specifically cited the example of Don Nardone, an 
electrical engineer and clarinet player. 

"He places as much value playing on the clarinet as 
anything he does. (Of the students in the bands) there are 
a lot of music majors and a lot of non-music majors, and 
all are on different levels," he added. 

Though things are looking good for both bands, Geeting 
noted that some specific section in each band are low this 
year. "Last year we had too many trumpets in the concert 
band and now there is a need for trumpets," he said, 
acknowledging the same for the jazz band, which is now 
low in saxophones but up in trombones. 

Rehearsals are Wednesday nights from 7:30-8:45 pm for 
concert band and 9-10 p.m. for jazz band. Anyone inter- 
ested in playing either band can call Dan Geeting, Director 
of Instrumental Music, at Ext. 331 1 for more details.

New instructor brings film 
industry to CLU students 

Rasmussen adds new perspective to commmunication arts department 


Features Editor 

Most communications students at Cali- 
fornia Lutheran University have their course 
information readily available. For students 
focusing on film, however, resources might 
be more limited. 
That is, until now. 

This fall at CLU, new communication 
arts instructor Christine Rasmussen brings 
to her classroom just the kind of film school 
information and experiences that would- 
be-film makers have been waiting for. 

Rasmussen, an MFA graduate of the 
UCLA Graduate School of Film and a vet- 
eran of the film industry, is teaching courses 
in both film and television at CLU. She 
brings both expert knowledge and friendly 
advise to students who dream of someday 
making their own films. 

Following her graduation from UCLA, 
Rasmussen assisted in teaching courses in 
both basic and advanced cinematography. 
Prior to film school, she spent an impres- 
sive ten years dancing in the Ballet Pacifica, 
a professional ballet company. 
"I developed a strong love for dance as a 
young girl," she said, adding, "Because of 
ballet, I learned very early how important it 
is to have self-discipline. I also learned 
about the various components needed to 
make a show happen. 

"Of course practice is extremely impor- 
tant, but even more important than that is 
thateveryone has their part, and everyone is 
dependent upon each other. You learn to be 
responsible for your own part, and yet you 
must also collaborate with others. It was a 
highly valuable experience," recalled 

Throughout high school, junior college 
and college, Rasmussen used her back- 
ground in classical ballet to choreograph 
dance concerts, musicals, and other dance 

It was when she decided that she would 
like loenhance these performances with the 
use of videos and video screens that she 
found her way to the UCLA film depart- 

"I started getting into the technologies 
such as video cameras, monitors and mul- 
tiple screens so that I could add something 
new to something I had been doing for a 
longtime. Iwasn'ttakinganyclasses.Iwas 
just learning about these things for my own 

"But I later decided to lake courses in the 
film department in order to gel a better 
understanding of how to use ihem and what 
was available. 

Soon Rasmussen found herself immersed 
in film, "Before I knew what was happen- 
ing, I found myself taking many classes, 
and becoming increasingly interested as I 
went along." 
Even though Rasmussen knew her whole 

life that film was something she wanted to 
pursue, this was her first opportunity to 
experience it first-hand. 

"I applied for UCLA's Graduate School 
of Film and began taking courses there the 
fall after I graduated. I was fortunate to 
have made several short films and videos 
while I was there, and I really got a broad 
sense of what is needed to take a concept or 
idea and turn it into an actual work," 
Rasmussen said. 

Rasmussen highly recommends some 
form of film school for anyone who hopes 
to pursue a career in the field, because the 
knowledge and experience that one gains 
from a film school environment is indis- 

She does point out, however, that film 
school is not the only avenue through which 
an aspiring film maker can gain the neces- 
sary skills. 

Regarding the industry, Rasmussen said 
that it's not as hard as it seems to get into. 
"It is relatively easy to gel a job on a 
production as a crew member and work 
your way up ihc ladder. I know that lots of 
people want only to be directors, or only 10 
be producers, but there's really nothing 
wrong with starting at the bottom and going 

"In fact, it is really a good idea, because it 
is impossible to direct or produce without a 
complete working knowledge of all of the 
jobs on a given film. So if a person has been 
working on a production, worked with the 
lighting crew, worked on the set, worked 
with sound, worked with the cameras, etc. 
then they will be more able to work with a 
crew and direct that crew more success- 
fully, " Rasmussen explained. 

There is another advantage to working 
your way up the film maker's ladder: being 
in the right place at the right time. 
Rasmussen said, "I was once working as a 
production assistant on a Fox video that 
promoted racial equality. This particular 

video was supposed to have an entire se- 
quence of kids dancing, but minutes before 
the filming was to begin, the choreographer 
had not shown up. 

"Since I had my experience in choreogra- 
phy, I knew that I could handle the job, but 
I was very nervous to approach the director 
and producer," she said. 

"First of all, I didn't know them at all, and 
second, I was only an assistant. I decided 
that I had to give it a shot, so I approached 
them and offered to do both my job and the 
choreographer's job. Instead of getting 
angry that an assistant was approaching 
them, they were impressed by my profes- 
sionalism," explained Rasmussen. 

"Since I got over my fear of approaching 
them, I wound up opening new doors for 
myself. Now that same producer calls me 
whenever she needs someone reliable be- 
cause she knows that she can count on me."

youth highlight 
Regal volleyball 

Sports Editor 

With a core of experienced players, the CLU women's 
volleyball team is hoping to spike their way to this year's 
Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference 

Second-year coach James Park, who graduated from 
CLU in '86, is hoping to improve on last year's successful 
campaign. In his first season as a coach at the collegiate 
level, he led the Regal s to an overall record of 14- 1 3. They 
ended up 5-7 in SCIAC, which resulted in a fourth place 

However, this season could be even more plentiful for the 
lady Regals. A wealth of experience highlights the squad, 
which features three former AU-SCI AC members and two 
that may be on the way towards earning that recognition. 

The well-seasoned veterans are led by the 5-foot-8 Darcy 
White. The junior from Rosamond, CA led CLU last year 
with 144 kills and 154 digs, earning her First Team All- 
SCI AC. With two years already under her belt, White will 
be expected to have a monster year. She is easily one of the 
most talented athletes out on the court 

Tara Thomas, also in her third year, led the Regals with 
265 set assists and was second behind While with 143 digs. 
Thomas' selung was an instrumental part of the Regals 

Tracy Little provides Regals with leadership Almeee Snider hopes to come back from Injury 

success last year. She will be relied on heavily again. 

Aimee "Bo" Snider had 77 assists in an injury-riddled 
season last year. And despite arm trouble this season 
(which she suffered in Softball last spring), the Regals are 
hoping she can return to her original form of '92 when she 
was a freshman in which she earned Second Team All- 
SCI AC honors with 484 assists and 36 service aces. 

The fourth and fifth links to the seasoned vets are 6-foot 
junior Kelli McCaskill and 5-foot-9Tracy Little. McCaskill 
is a force, being first on the team with 16 solo blocks and 
20 block assists last season. Little, although only a sopho- 
more, plays way beyond her years. As a freshman she 

recorded 1 12 kills and 113 digs en route to being voted 
Second Team All-SCI AC. Along with While, Little can be 
a dominating player at times. 

Experience is a non-factor when talking about the rest of 
the team. Freshmen Liz Martinez, Jamey Light, Jennifer 
Pappas and Megan Falde round out the squad. They all 
come directly from high school programs and it is inevi- 
table that they will be "thrown into the fire" in only their 
first years. 

With some depth from the untested underclassmen, some 
savvy from the returnees, and hopefully a lillle luck, the 
Regals may be on their way to a banner year. 

Cross Country starts out strong 

Program on the rise with promising freshman, returners 

Staff Writer 

The CLU men's and women's cross 
country teams are back and ready for a 
new season. With some solid returnees 
complemented with a strong group of 
freshman, the Kingsmen and Regals ap- 
pear to have talented teams. 

Head coach Derek Turner, whose wife 
Melissa acts as ihe assistant coach, is in 
her first year at CLU. Derek's previous 
coaching experience was at Oxnard High 
School, where he speni the last six years. 

Lack of depth will be the biggest prob- 
lem for these learns, as they are relying on 
a limited amount of runners. "Things are 
in a building phase. I've got some tal- 
ented kids, we jusi need to gain some 
depth," Turner said. 

One of the more talented runners is Jed 
Colvin. Colvin, a returning sophomore, 
opened the season by running an excel- 
lent race al the Whitiier College Invita- 
tional on Sept 1 0. Turner said that Colvin 
"is back and really looks ready to run." 
Freshman Cory Stigile and senior Eric 
Burkett also had strong showings at the 
meet. Sligile felt the meet was "a good 

start. It gives us a good foundation." 
The Regals also ran well, finishing 18th 
among the teams at the Whittier Invita- 
tional. Seniors Jill Fuess and Roeline 
Hanson led the team. Freshmen Jill Mahre 
and Lisa Loberg also performed well at 
the meet, showing some promise for the 

Both teams are still looking to add solid 
athletes. For anyone who has had running 
experience in the past, or jusi wants to get 
in shape, it's not too late to join. Those 
who do can expect to be a part of an 
excellent team with bright prospects for 
the coming years. Regarding the teams 
prospects, Turner is confident. "I'm look- 
ing forward to ihe future. We're going to 
build this program." 

The men's and women's teams will 
reium to action on Sept. 24 at ihe Cal 
Tech Invitational.

Kingsmen topple Claremont in season opener 

CLU to face tough UCSD on Saturday 

The Echo, Sept. 21,1994 11 


Staff Writer 

Despite a high scoring game, the CLU 
defense came up big when it counted. They 
forced one fumble and had three intercep- 
tions to lead the Kingsmen past the 
Claremont-Mudd-Scripps Stags 37-34 on 
Saturday at ClaremonL 

On Saturday, the Kingsmen travel to 
LaJol la to take on the UC San Diego Tritons 
for a 1 p;.m. game. 

Although the Stags posted impressive 
numbers on offense in last week's game, the 
Kingsmen defense continued to make the 
big play at the right moment. The first 
critical defensive play came when the Stags 
had the ball on the Kingsmen 20 yard line 
with a first down. The Kingsmen held the 
Stags and sacked the Claremont quarter- 
backon third down forcing them outof field 
goal range with no points. 

Stags score first 

However, Claremont scored first making 
it 7-0 on a 13 yard touchdown pass after a 
couple costly Kingsmen penalties. The of- 
fense had a couple big yardage drives led by 
running back Terrence Thomas and quar- 
terback Ryan Huisenga, but failed to score. 
Terrence Thomas had a great game with 21 
runs for 125 yards. After starling slow, 
Ryan Huisenga completed 21 passes for 
257 yards through the air. 

With the Stags driving on their own 47 
yard line, the defense made the second big 
play of the game. Defensive back Chad 
Valousky made a jarring hit on a Claremont 

running back flipping him over and knock- 
ing the ball loose in the process. Valousky 
then picked it up and raced 52 yards for the 
touchdown making it 7-7. 

Rohn intercepts 

"The play seemed to fire up the offense, 
everyone came together and started playing 
better," said Valousky. On the Stags next 
possession, the CLU defense came up huge 
again. After being driven all the way inside 
their own 10 yard line, Stan Rohn inter- 
cepted the football in the end zone, and 
Claremont came away scoreless again. 

The Kingsmen offense came together af- 
ter the two huge defensive plays. They went 
on a 80 yard drive for a touchdown that 
included more runs from Terrence Thomas 
and passes from Huisenga to Billy Parra, 
Steve Rousscll , and finally a 20 yard touch- 
down pass to Tom Herman making it 14-7. 
The Kingsmen defense then stopped 
Claremont cold when a Lance Martin sack 
forced them to punt. 

CLU look the ball at the 49 yard line 
with under two minutes left in the half. 
Terrence Thomas continued his good run- 
ning, and Huisenga continued to hook up 
with Billy Parra, who had 179 receiving 
yards on the game. The offense got the ball 
in field goal position setting up a 34 yard 
field goal by Dan Leffler with 52 seconds 
left in the half giving the Kingsmen a 17-7 
half-time advantage. 

The second half saw many offensive 
fireworks from both teams. After the de- 
fense stopped Claremont led by Chris 
Peltonen's third down sack, the offense 

went on another impressive drive. It started 
on their own 30 yard line and featured more 
Terrence Thomas runs mixed in with some 
good hard runs by Ivan Moreno. Also, Billy 
Parra had two more catches to help on the 
drive. It ended with athrec yard touchdown 
run by Ivan Moreno making it 23-7 after a 
missed point after. 

The CLU running game was effective all 
game. Ivan Moreno said, "We put together 
some good drives, and we were running 
good in spurts. Our turnovers kept them in 
the game, if we lake those away, we pretty 
much dominated." 

CLU lead cut to 23-14 

The Stags took advantage of an intercep- 
tion and cut the Kingsmen lead to 23-14. 
CLU continued its turnover problems by 
fumbling on the ensuing drive. The Stags 
then drove the ball all the way to the Kins- 
men five yard line, but the defense again 
stopped them, and the score remained 23- 
14 after a Claremont missed field goal. 

The CLU offense repeated their mistakes 
by turning the ball over again on an inter- 
ception, which proved costly this time. The 
Stags took advantage marching the ball 
down the field for a touchdown making it 
23-20 after a missed point after. The 
Kingsmen offense then remembered how 
to hold on to the ball and went on one of the 
most impressive drives of the game. Jason 
Higbee replaced Terrence Thomas because 
of a minor injury and contributed with sev- 
eral good hard runs. 

Higbee said, "The offensive line was blast- 
ing open big holes, the offense was good 

except for the turnovers." Higbee and 
Moreno had big runs up the middle con- 
trasting their style with Thomas'. "Wehave 
different styles of running, Terrence uses 
his speed to get outside, and I go straight up 
field and use my quickness." 

Billy Parra caught an important pass as 
did Tom Herman. Ivan Moreno scampered 
in for the touchdown from 1 yard out, and 
Dan Leffler added the extra point to make it 
30-20 Kingsmen with 10:46 left in the game. 

However, the Slags refused to go away 
and scored quickly on a 20 yard touchdown 
pass with 9:20 left in the game. After forc- 
ing the Kingsmen lo punt, the Stags took 
their first lead of the game with a 77 yard 
drive making it 34-27 with only 4:15 left. 

The Kingsmen answered with the most 
important drive of the game. Faced with 
fourth and fivewith 2:47 to go and the game 
in the balance, Ryan Huisenga hooked up 
with his favorite target, Billy Parra, to keep 
the drive alive. The drive was capped with 
a 35 yard touchdown pass to Billy Parra, of 

Stags try to come back 

The extra point gave the Kingsmen a 
decisive 37-34 lead. Claremont tried to 
mount a comeback, but it ended with an- 
other terrific defensive play. Nick Estrada 
Intercepted a Claremont pass and clinched 
the game for the Kingsmen. 

Although there were the usual opening 
game mistakes on both sides of the ball , the 
Kingsmen came away with the victory they 
set out for knowing that improvement will

J.V. Soccer shows 
lots of heart and 
toughness despite 
small squad 

Editor in Chief 

The men's J.V. soccer team had a 
strong showing again this past 
weekend as they narrowly lost to a 
faster, more experienced Glcndalc 
Community College from Arizona by a 

Uustin Magdalcno once again 
displayed his leadership by netting both 
goals for the Kingsmen. With only three 
substitutes, the J.V. squad had little left 
at the end of the game, but still kept 
running until the final whistle. 

The score was tied 2-2 for the 
majority of the game until late in the 
second half, when the visiting team was 
awarded a questionable penalty kick, 
which they promptly put away. 

The men's varsity has had a tough go 
this fall, starting out with an 0-6 record 
but are looking to netting a win 
Saturday at Whitlicr, their first SCIAC 


The Kingsmen have lost to Azusa 
Pacific, Cal Slate L.A., The Masters 
College, CS Dominguez Hills, 
Westmont College and Chapman, wiih 
the latter two ending in overtime. 
The Regals have had a better showing 
so far posting victories against The 
Master College 9- 1 , La Verne 5- 1 , 
Claremont-Mudd-Scripps 2-0, and 
Chapman College, 3-0. 

Their only blemish has been a 1-0 loss 
to Azusa Pacific. The Regals will be 
looking to improve their record this 
week as they play at Rcdlands today .

KCLU-FM 88.3 to go on the air tomorrow 


Contributing Writer 

KCLU-FM 88.3 is going live and will be 
on the air tomorrow with a gala opening at 
4:30 p.m. free to the university and commu- 
nity from the studios in Mt. Clef resident 

The party will continue on into the evening

a special guest speaker. 

KCLU's new staff includes Dan Kuntz, 
general manager; Mary Olson, marketing/ 
development director, and Mike West, pro- 
gram director, and Tim Schultz, engineer. 
They have been working many long hours 
to make this CLU dream a reality. 

Kuntz said, as he anticipated tomorrow's 
big moment, that "we will go on the air on 
October 20, even if I have to hold the 

alligator clips together with my teeth." 
Two who will be especially pleased to see 
the station go on the air are Dr. Beverly 
Kelley and Schultz, members during the 
initial planning stages of the first CLU radio 
project in 1973. 

KCLU is applying for grants with the 
Corporation for Public Broadcasting and is

radio" station with the delivery and sound 

of a veteran professional radio station.

What's Going On 
Behind New West? 


Staff Writer 

A 14-unit project is currently underway 
in the plot of land behind New West dormi- 
tories along Olsen Road. 

However, that piece of land does not 
belong to Cal Lutheran. 

"It's got nothing to do with the school," 
said Dennis Gillette, vice president of Insti- 
tutional Advancement 

The trucks and bulldozers parked there 
are clearing up the dust to make way for a 
building pad. 

A private, 14-unit housing project will 
then materialize on top of that pad. 

Gillette said that the school does not 
know when the construction will be com- 
pleted since that property is private and 
does not fall under CLU jurisdiction. 

So far, there have been no complaints by 
any New West residents. 

Study reveals wide use of alcohol among CLU students 

Health Services director speaks of harmful consequences resulting from substance abuse 

News Editor 

Sixty-nine percent of CLU students had 
consumed alcohol in the past 30 days, ac- 
cording to the CLU Core Drug and Alcohol 

CLU is combating this problem with 
programs such as Alcoholic Awareness 
Week. Many CLU students participated in 
the events of Alcoholic Awareness week. 
The week was designed to help students 
cope and understand the responsibilities 
and dangers of use. 

The main goal of the week was "to pro- 
mote responsible drinking," said Stephanie 
Sims, the coordinator of residence life. 
The week included activities ranging from 

the effects of drinking and driving, a video 
showing people being arrested, alternatives 
to alcohol , a sobriety test and drinking games 
such as quarters. 

The study, taken in November, 1993 was 
free of charge for CLU because it was taken 
in conjunction with an Oxnard study. The 
survey was taken in order to accomplish 
improved programs on campus. 

The survey also revealed that 63 percent 
of students under 21 reported the use of 
alcohol at least once in the previous 30 

Also, 40 percent of students "binge" or 
have had five or more drinks at a sitting in 
the previous two weeks. 

"Studies show that the highest percent- 

age of 'binge drinking' takes place at small 
schools," Kemmerling asaid. 

Common reasons cited for the use of 
alcohol among college-aged students are 
bordem, relaxation, and to have fun. 

Said one CLU sophomore, "I always say 
I am not going to drink today, but then I end 
up sitting around doing nothing. Drinking 
makes everything more fun." 

Whether one wants to accept it or not, the 
harsh reality of the matter is that alcohol is 
a big part of a college student's life. "So 
much at CLU revolves around alcohol," 
Kemmerling said, "We need more socializ- 
ing activities, rather than alcohol." 

The CLU Core Drug and Alcohol Survey 
also stated that 24 percent of CLU students 

have used marijuana at least once during 
the past year and 1 1 percent said they have 
used marijuana within the past 30 days. 
Also 9 percent of students have used some 
kind of illegal drug other than marijuana at 
some time within the past year. 
In addition, 5 percent have used an illegal 
drug other than marijuana within the past

Cuba, Haiti 
troubling U.S., 
speaker says 


Contributing Writer 

Tensions in Cuba and Haiti continue to 
rise, but there are no quick solutions. Dr. 
Guillermo Belt, special adviser to the Sec- 
retary of General of the Organization of 
American States (O AS), told a CLU faculty 
-student audience Friday. 

According to Belt the situation in Cuba 
still remains problematic. Cuba is ready to 
mend economic relations with the United 
States, but the United States will not mend 
economic relations until political relations 
are dealt with. Cuba, however, is not coop- 
erating with the United States' stance. 

"The OAS charter tries to uphold the 
principleof democracy and an overthrow of 
democratic governments is a great concern 
of OAS," Belt said. This comment lead to 
the discussion of OAS' involvement with 
Haiti. "The embargo was OAS' greatest 
threat to Haiti," Belt said. But the Haitians 
didn't "buckle" to this threat. This lead to 
the ultimate threat— U.S. military interven- 

A member of the audience asked what 
will happen when President Jean-Bertrand 
AristideTs restored to power. Belts re- continued from page 1

constitution and 67 percent of Haitians sup- 
ported his return." The support of Haitians 
is an integral part to Aristide's success as 
president and the turnaround of the country. 
"OAS is the oldest organization of its 
time. Its survival is due to its adaptation to 
changes in the world," Belt said. There are 
a total of 34 OAS members. Of those 34 

members, Cuba is the onlv inactive mem- 
ber. Cuba cannot participate because it is 

unwilling to obey OAS's charter rules, but 

it still remains a member.

Faculty extends policy 
toward disabled 

A policy of nondiscrimination regard- 
ing students with disabilities was 
passed by the faculty in its last meeting 
of the 1994 spring semester. 

Currently at CLU, there is no fully devel- 
oped program concerning students with dis- 
abilities, and this policy was passed in order 
to clarify the university's position on the 

"This policy was passed in order to get the 
word out to the community and student 
body that there is an office to contact if one 
wishes to identify themself as being men- 
tally or physically disabled," said Gerry 
S wanson. Director of the Learning Resource 
Center and Coordinator of Services for Stu- 
dents with Disabilities. 

He further stated that the policy will help 

clear up the university's stand on students 

with disabilities. 

"It is a major step on the part of the 

university in extending its policy to the 

disabled," said Swanson. 

The policy was adopted to help provide 
services to students who have identified 
themselves as having documented disabili- 
ties and also gives students guidelines for 
making one's disabilities known and re- 
questing services. 

Anyone who would like information re-

Letter to the Editor: More opposition to Proposition 187 

I would like to respond to Adam Abrahms rather strong 
comments concerning Proposition 187. First of all, sev- 
eral points were well taken, such as the fact that the 
targeted group for financial cut-off arc illegal residents in 
this country, they are receiving free services, and those of 
us who pay taxes are providing those services. Probably 
the majority of the populace had rather not be footing the 
bill for those benefits. 

However, there are two points I feel need to be consid- 
ered. First of all it is unlikely that we will see a mass 
exodus of the illegals from California just because we 
want them to leave. 

Which brings us to the issues of education and health 
care. With the influx of the illegal immigrants has come 
an outbreak of many communicable diseases that hereto- 
fore were under control in this country. If we cut off free 

medical care, isn't it naive to think the diseases won't 

The second issue is education. If we deny education to 
these children, what will they do all day? What about the 
teenagers? They will find some way to fill their time. I 
personally prefer to attempt to educate them rather than 
deal with more illegitimate babies, more taggers, more 
crime. Do we really want a generation of illiterates in our 

As with most issues in our society, this one's compli- 
cated. Each position has long-term consequences. There 
are no simplistic answers. The "problem" is not going to 
go away just because we are tired of paying for it.

CLU student defends 'equity' feminists 


Contributing Writer 

I am a feminist. Wait, don't turn the page yet, let me 
explain. If you're like most people, you instantly got an 
image of a"feminazi;" a bra-burning male basher, the kind 
of woman that makes Rush Limbaugh wad up at night in 
a cold sweat During the last decade, women like Naomi 
Wolf, Catherine McKinnon and Andrea Dworkin have 
perpetuated this myth and led the feminist movement to 
the far left with irrational rantings about male patriarchy 
and the victimization of women. This tactic may have 
worked in the 80' s, but they need to wake up and meet the 
reality of the 90' s. 

The feminist movement of the 80' s whined about de- 
serving equality, but cried "rape!" and "sexual harass- 
ment!" at the drop of a hat. The women of the so-called 
"Generation X" are not victims and are sick of the double 
standard. The new "Equity" feminists want a level playing 
field, not a bargaining table. Many of the women want true 
equality, which means that women would be judged and 
dealt with on an equal basis with men. If you want 
equality, you earn it, rather than whine, complain, or sue 
until you get it 

Personally, I am sick of all the self-righteous women 
who can't deal with men on an even level and don't take 
responsibility for their own actions. In the last few years 
I've heard of several "date rape" cases, even here at CLU, 
where I had to believe the guy involved. If a woman goes 
out and gets hammered, she needs to be responsible for her 
own well-being and not put herself in a compromising 
position. If she blacks out or has no control over her 
situation, then she must take some responsibility for what- 

ever happens. 

But wait, I do realize there's another side to this. First, 
there are legitimate rape cases, and by all means, the male 
involved is entirely culpable for his actions. Second, if we 
lived in a decent world, women would not have to worry 
about being in danger, because all humans (or most any- 
way) would have enough respect for another human being 
to not take advantage of them . However, it is obvious that 
that is a Utopia not to be found in the near future. 

Total equality for all people is the main philosophy 
behind equity feminism. All humans should treat the rest 
of humanity with the respect, dignity, and common de- 
cency that is a basic tenet of a "civilized" society. In 
today's world, we need to worry more about crime, pov- 
erty, the destruction of Mother Earth and the current state 
of education than about date rape, sexual harassment, and 

Why are we wasting valuable dollars on lawsuits while 
children can't go to a safe school and get a decent educa- 
tion, the feminization of poverty is increasing rapidly, and 
the Earth may not be able to support our burgeoning 
population through the first 50 years of the second millen- 

We currently live in an age where we have to deal with 
the cold hard facts of life every second of the day. Let's do 
away with sensationalism, unrealistic demands, and irra- 
tional accusations, and get back to the basics. 

Equity feminists are working toward bringing men and 
women into war camps. We have enough battles to fight 
as it is, so let's end the war between the sexes and move on 
to more important issues. Who knows, maybe someday 
men and women will live together peacefully, working 
toward a common goal. We can always dream, can't we?

Campus Quotes: 

Students were asked what they thought about the existence of 
alcohol and drugs on campus, and here's what they said: 

"I think the alcohol policy should be closed door." 
Matt Smith - Junior 

"It is restricted, but people still drink in the dorms." 
I vena Widjaja - Freshman 

"Drugs and alcohol on campus?" 
Desta Ronning - Junior 

"It seems to me as a freshman that drugs and alcohol are rampant on campus more 
than I expected." 

Mike Foster - Freshman 

"I figure if you're old enough to drink, you can drink where you want By allowing 
students to drink on campus it will prevent them from drinking elsewhere and 
driving back," 

Shannon Looney - Junior 

"I think it's here, but I don't feel threatened by it." 
Johanna LaRocque - Freshman 

'The biggest problem is not the use but the misuse of alcohol." 
Veronica Garcia - Sophomore 

"I think alcohol should be allowed, it would eliminate the number of drunk drivers." 
Erik Ditlefsen - Freshman

University alcohol policy not 
always followed by students 

The university policy on alcohol use clearly states, 
"Campus standards do not allow alcoholic beverages on 
campus." This is a rule which many students do not 
necessarily follow. 

Although threatened by the prospect of a "write up," 
there is still a large number of CLU students who choose 
to do their drinking on campus with the hope that they 
will not get caught. 

As result to a "write up," a student must adhere to 
various violation steps. The first violation is an educa- 
tional sanction. For the second violation, an educational 
sanction and a $25 fine are required. 

The third violation continues to include the educa- 
tional sanction and raises the fine to $50. If a student has 
a fourth violation, they must endure an educational 
sanction, an alcohol assessment and a fine of $75. 

A fifth violation cancels on-campus housing with no 
refund of fees and a loss of residence hall visiting 

The CLU student handbook also mentions, "Alcohol 
policy as well as other policy violations may result in 
suspension, dismissal or expulsion from the residence 
halls or the University." 

The university also has a policy on the possession of 
empties. This prohibits the presence of empty alcohol 
containers in residence halls. Any decorative empties 
must be registered with the Resident Director. The 
results of an empties violation include a formal warning 
for the first violation and an alcohol policy violation for 
the second one. 

Because of not being able to drink on campus, many 
students are forced to either find an alternate location or 
to just break the rules and drink on campus. 

Although it is against the rules, there is one advantage 
to drinking on campus. It cuts down on drunk driving. 
This is the idea that many students have. It is a valid 
argument, however, it still is breaking University rules. 

With the new implementation of the sober rides pro- 
gram , people should take the initiative to use it when they 
need it. This helps to eliminate the drunk driving concern 
of many students. 

If we wanted to completely eliminate the problems 
drinking on campus could lead to, we could just stop 
drinking all together. This, as we all know, is virtually 
impossible. Because of this it is important to understand 
all the results of drinking both on and off campus.

Manager brings friendly smile, experience to CLU 

Appreciated by students, faculty for her hard work, dedication and conscientiousness 


Contributing Writer 

Upon entering the CLU bookstore, a 
decorative assortment of clothing, school 
supplies, snacks and other items surround- 
ing the cashiers 'counters are the first thing 
you'll notice. 

To the back of the bookstore, colorful 
textbooks lie juxtaposed neatly on white 
bookshelves that stand approximately 7 
feet high. 

On a typical fall Monday, Maria 
Clint' Myers, CLU textbook manager, be- 
gins her morning at the bookstore inputting 
data and sales transactions. 

Clint' Myers is a petite woman with a 
British accent, dark brown, shoulder- 
length hair, who wears glasses and always 
dresses comfortably in a blouse and slacks. 
As she modestly sits behind her desk in a 
quiet section of the bookstore, Clint'Myers 
awaits to help customers. And her attitude 
makes life easier for those who make pur- 
chases there. 


Things aren't always so easy for 
Clint'Myers, however. There are those 
times when her job can become chaotic. 

One such time is when there is a shortage 
of books. In this case, Clint'Myers keeps 
an update of books that might run into a 

She does this by collaborating with the 
registrar's office on the number of stu- 
dents that will be enrolled in classes the 
following semester. 

This allows Clint'Myers to know which 
classes might be over-filled and will re- 
quire more textbooks than the class-roster 

"Sometimes students adding a class or 
those hoping to get into classes purchase 
books and there are occasionally not enough 
to go around, so I back order. 

"We don't ask for identification when 
making sales, so non-students can pur- 
chase books. I take names and telephone 
numbers and request books needed imme- 
diately," she says. 

fn addition, Clint'Myers keeps a printout 
that includes the names and number of 
books, prices, classes and number of stu- 
dents enrolled. 

Since textbooks are one of the most sig- 

nificant factors in a classroom, professors 
are given priority when ordering books. 

Also, professors are given the opportu- 
nity to request books for students, even 
after notices announcing the ordering dead- 
line have been issued. 

These deadlines usually occur in October 
for the Spring Semester and April for the 
Fall Semester. 

If those deadlines are missed, professors 
can rely on the number of students previ- 
ously enrolled in a class. 

For example, Clint'Myers says if 24 stu- 
dents were in a class last semester, profes- 
sors will request 24 books this semester. 

New Changes at Bookstore 

She says that before the earthquake, stu- 
dents needing books at the beginning of 
the semester could only get them by wait- 
ing in line. 

Students were not allowed to browse 
through the books themselves, and could 
only receive them from bookstore em- 

This has all changed, however, as a result 
of the extension that opened the formerly 
closed-off back portion of the store. 

Things are now much more convenient 
for students and bookstore staff alike. Stu- 
dents and faculty have better access to the 
books, and bookstore workers are free to 
concentrate on other business. 

However, despite the new and more ac- 
cessible layout of the bookstore, 
Clint'Myers still enjoys helping custom- 
ers find what they need. 

On Friday afternoons, Clint'Myers can 
usual ly be found busily inputting computer 
information. "Fridays are usually quiet," 
she says. 

Nonetheless, when students appear to 
make purchases, Clint'Myers happily drops 
her work to assist them. 

Many students are grateful for the 
bookstore's selection of sodas, small gro- 
cery items, film, batteries, clothes and 
magazines. Having such things on campus 
can save students from a trip to the store. 

Some students simply appreciate being 
able to avoid long lines. 

Mike Snowden, a business major, says 
"I'm a commuter student and don't feel 
like going into the cafeteria or coffee shop 
for just a drink because the lines are too 

Clint'Myers believes students come first In the bookstore

Clint'Myers adds that students find dif- 
ferent reasons to shop at the bookstore 
during different times of the year. 

'Two weeks before school starts we're 
busy selling such items as sweatshirts and 
T-shirts. And then lots of jackets during 
the winter to freshmen and alumni," she 
says, "Another popular item is the back- 


Clint'Myers first moved to the United 
States after working as a bus ticket atten- 
dant in Westchester, England, 13 years 

Before moving to her own apartment, 
Clint'Myers lived with her parents, who 
had relocated to Santa Monica the previ- 
ous year. 

Her first job was as a textbook manager 
at Tarn's Stationary bookstore in 
Northridge eight years after moving to the 
United States. 

Four years later, she transferred to Cal 
State Northridge 's textbook exchange, 
where she had the opportunity to work 
directly with students and faculty mem- 

Clint'Myers had completed education 
equivalent to high school level, and had at 
one time attempted to further her educa- 
tion. She enrolled in liberal arts and sci- 
ence courses at Pierce and Los Angeles 
Valley community colleges. 
"Working full-time and going to school 

was difficult. Later, I found that I only 
wanted to assure myself that I could com- 
plete college courses because a college 
education in the United States appears 
easier to achieve than in England," 
Clint'Myers says. 

"If I had the time and money I would go 
on to college, but I can't afford to and 
work," she adds. 

Things changed drastically for 
Clint'Myers earlier this year when the 
January earthquake jolted her out of her 
bed and home. The building in which she 
and her husband lived was condemned, 
and they moved to an apartment in Ventura. 

"CLU is a smaller campus and the people 
are nicer here," Clint'Myers says. 

"Approximately 25,000 attend Cal State 
Northridge and attending CLU are about 
2,500. It's easier to commute to the CLU 
campus from Ventura. When I'm looking 
out of the window, I enjoy watching the 

This campus has been a great change for 
Clint'Myers. Last year she suffered emo- 
tionally when her mother died of 
Alzheimer's in October and her father died 
in February of a "broken heart." 

While nothing can replace the lives of her 
parents, Clint'Myers is at least comforted 
to be working around people she enjoys. 
She finds pleasure in her work because of 
her love for people. Her delightful smile, 
disposition and willingness to help, make 
the bookstore a pleasant place to shop.

CLU trio loses 
the blues 

Opinion Editor 

Lose the Blues in Agoura Hills was 
filled Oct 1 1 with an enthusiastic crowd 
made up of CLU students and others watch- 
ing Wendy Johnson and Rich Gregory along 
with the new addition of Matt Milnes play- 
ing electric guitar perform. The group did 
a couple sets of their own songs and those 
of various other artists such as the Count- 
ing Crows, the Indigo Girls and the Cure. 
Although the evening was marred by 
technical problems with Johnson's micro- 
phone, the trio still managed to put on a 
dynamic and entertaining show. 
With the new addition of Milnes, Johnson 
and Gregory added a new twist to some of 
their old songs. Although this was the first 
time Milnes played guitar with the pair 
publicly, he and Gregory sounded as if they 
had been playing together much longer. 

The group opened up their first set with 
"Losing You," one of their original songs. 
After hearing the first song it was clear that 
the group had made big improvements 
since their very first performances. 

Gregory, Johnson and Milnes took the 
chance to try out a new song they had been 
working on called "Silent Love." Although 
the sound of this new song was slightly 
different than some of the other ones in 
their repertoire, the audience responded 
enthusiastically to it. 

Before performing "The Becky Song," 
Johnson was quick to point out the inspira- 
tion for this song in the audience. This 

helped to add a more personal feeling to the 
words which she sang. After playing for 

about an hour, the trio ended their first set 

and cleared the way for singer/songwriter 

Pat Conway to take the stage. Conway 

wrapped up his performance by jam mine a

For the second set, the crowd had 
dispersed, leaving only a small amount 
of CLU students and other people who 
happened to be at Lose the Blues that 
night. The band performed the same 
songs they had in their first set, making 
some of their songs a little different in 
some way. Although there was a smaller 
crowd, Johnson, Gregory and Milnes 
managed to keep the audience enter- 
tained with their melodic style. 

Johnson decided to take center stage 
and play guitar and sing by herself on

"Fire and Rain." Gregory also tried some- 
thing new by singing "Mary" with 
Johnson. It was interesting to see the 
change of roles with Johnson playing 
Gregory ' s part and vice versa Although i t 
was clear that each person was probably 
more comfortable in their own roles, both 
did terrific. 

Throughout the evening, Johnson, Gre- 
gory and Milnes appeared to be comfort- 
able with their audience. 

The group will be performing again at 
Lose the Blues on Nov. 8 and 20. They 
will also be in the SUBon Oct. 28. 

Love And Rockets Back with Impressive New Album 

After hiatus 'Hot Trip to Heaven' offers sound never before attempted by UK band 

Staff Writer 

After a five year hiatus, the veteran 
English trio Love And Rockets is back 
with "Hot Trip To Heaven," a musically 
diverse album that embraces styles never 
before experimented with on their previ- 
ous four records. 

One of the many bands to form out of 
the late 1970's UK gothic rock move- 
ment, Love And Rockets have been mak- 
ing cutting-edge music for almost a de- 
cade. After the breakup of their seminal 
British alternative band Bauhaus (which 
spearheaded the gothic movement), 
Daniel Ash (guitar, vocals), David J. 
(bass, vocals and Kevin Haskins (drums), 
went on to work on various side projects 
(J. with The Jazz Butcher and Ash and 
Haskins with Tones On Tail), eventually 
reuniting in 1 985 to form Love And Rock- 

The band's last four albums have al- 
most been predictably cyclical in themes 
and content Their first record, "Seventh 
Dream of Teenage Heaven (1985)," re- 
tained the moodiness and feel of later 

Bauhaus work, while 1986's "Express" 
was far more upbeat in both lyrical and 
musical content They reverted back to 
a more pensive feel in 1987 with "Earth, 
Sun and Moon." Love And Rockets' 
self-titled last album released two years 
later was more along the lines of "Ex- 
press," but carried a rougher edge cour- 
tesy of Ash's feedback and distortion- 
laden guitar work. 

Although that album spawned a major 
hit single ("So Alive"), the band feared 
mass commercialism creeping nearer 
and put itself on hold while the members 
pursued solo projects. 

During their time off from Love And 
Rockets, all three members embraced 
the acid house/dance revolution that was 
going through Europe. Inspired by this 
new scene, they reconnected last year 
and recorded "Hot Trip To Heaven," 
which mixes rock, techno, trance and 
ambient music, but is still recognizable 
as a Love And Rockets album. 

Unlike prior Love And Rockets work, 
most of "Hot Trip To Heaven" is ex- 
tremely hypnotic, due in part to drum- 
mer Haskins opting to use programming 

and drum machines instead of a live set 
adding even more dimension to the band's 

The ethereal opening of "Ugly" gradually 
progresses into a sensual, middle-eastern 
feel augmented by David J.'s gliding fret- 
less bass lines. Songs like "No Worries" 
and "Eclipse" are more calculated and fore- 
boding, the latter of which sets the mood 
for the slinky and intemperate jazz piece 
"Voodoo Baby." 

Ash's breathy vocals are in fine form on 
this song, which could just have easily 
fallen out of any lounge act's repertoire - 
except that it would be devoid of the sensu- 
ality that only Love And Rockets could 
give it 

Although "Hot Trip To Heaven" is a 
definite departure for Love And Rockets, it 
is an extremely good album and well wor- 
thy of a listen. For those not overly excited 
by their new change in direction, the band 
is in the studio now recording another 
album that will be closer to their previous 
work. If "Hot Trip To Heaven" is any kind 
of precursor of what is to be expected from 
Love And Rockets in the future, then all 
there is to wait for is just more great music 

An Alternative to 
the Alternative 


Staff Writer 

Ever since KurtCobain sung to the masses 
about teen angst in 1991, "alternative" 
music was pushed to the forefront of the 
music scene. 

For the first time since the late 70's/early 
80's punk explosion in both the UK and 
United States, music was suddenly excit- 
ing again. Gone were the excessive hordes 
of glam-rock bands that had been dominat- 
ing the charts and airwaves. 

Bands like Nirvana, Pearl Jam and the 
Red Hot Chili Peppers were getting major 
commercial exposure, virtually opening 
all doors for up and coming alternative 
bands. This music had always been there, 
it was just waiting for a means of gaining 
recognition on a higher level. 

In the same way that the aforementioned 
bands owe great debts of gratitude to alter- 
native godfathers like the Sex Pistols, the 
Ramones, Iggy Pop, the Clash and the 

Velvet Underground, newer bands like 
Rage Against the Machine, Tool and Green 
Day should feel obligated to set aside some 
reverence for bands like Nirvana and Pearl 
Jam (as well as MTV for picking up on 
them), who made it possible for them to 
enter the mainstream. 

Although bands such as Pearl Jam and 
the Chili Peppers have been given the ho- 
mogenized tides of "alternative" groups, 
there is a scene that is far more alternative 
and exciting than the one that these bands 
have been (unwillingly) herded into. 

Most of the bands in this particular scene 
are virtually unknown to the masses weaned 
on Pearl Jam, but yet are staples to the 
many interested in seeking out fresh new 

For lack of a better term, this is what real 
"college/alternative" music is. A good 
majority of these bands are on independent 
labels, most of which are owned by mem- 
bers of the bands themselves. 

For many years, Altemative Tentacles 
Records, owned by Dead Kennedy's 
frontman Jello Biafra, has been success- 
fully putting out albums by such bands as 
Brujeria, Victim's Family, as well as the 
Dead Kennedys. 

Brett Gurewitz, lead guitarist for the Los 
Angeles punk band Bad Religion owns and 
operates his lucrative Epitaph Records la- 
bel, the home for a whole new breed of 
punk bands like the Offspring, NOFX and 
Down By Law. Invisible Records and the 
newer World Domination are both labels 
housing many exciting and energetic new 
bands. Other independent labels worth 
checking out are SubPop (home to just 
about every Seattle band), Dischord, Am- 
phetamine Reptile and SST. 

It doesn't take much effort to become 
aware of what new music is out there. 
Magazines such as Spin, Option, Raygun 
and Altemative Press all spotlight these as 
well as many other bands. 

Remember, this was the scene that nur- 
tured bands like SonicYouth, the 
Roll insBand, Soundgarden and even Nir- 
vana, until they made the transition to the 

All it takes is time for the "next big 
thing" to make its move to the big leagues. 
It's a nice feeling to be able to say you 
heard it first.

KCLU-FM tro join long list of NPR affiliates 

National Public Radio to serve community through local information-oriented programming 


Contributing Writer 

NPR does not stand for Non-Profit Ra- 
dio. It doesn't mean Never Professional 
Radio, and it certainly isn't Nelwin Priest 
Radio. NPR is National Public Radio. It is 
a satellite service that serves over 500 
stations nationwide and reaches 14.7 mil- 
lion people. Its programming consists of a 
myriad of news and cultural programs. 

KCLU-FM is an NPR affiliate and will 
use NPR to provide its listeners with na- 
tional news and information daily, as well 
as a variety of cultural programs. KCLU 
will integrate this service with a jazz-based 
music library and a dedication to serving 
the community through local information 
oriented programming. 

NPR established for people 

NPR began in 1970 and was established 
by the Corporation For Public Broadcast- 
ing (CPB), which was founded in 1967 by 
the FCC. Their aim was to help many 
small, educational noncommercial stations 
and to rise to become the role model for 
professional and technical standards in the 
news-gathering and production aspects of 
the radio business. The idea was "pro- 
gramming that will be responsive to the 
interests of the people." NPR originated 
the idea of linking the programming of 
stations nationwide and went on the air 
with 90 public radio stations as charter 
members. They expanded on this idea in 
1979 by becoming the first ever satellite- 

The inaugural broadcast of NPR was a 
live coverage of the Senate Vietnam Hear- 
ings on April 19, 1971. A few weeks later 
the the daily news program "All Things 
Considered" debuted commencing NPR's 

commitment to news and information. It is 
still a strong running program on NPR and 
along with "Morning Edition" and "Week- 
end Edition" has gained millions of loyal 
listeners along with awards and honors all 

over the country. 

Other NPR news shows include 'Talk Of 
The Nation" (a national call-in show), "Ho- 
rizons" (a documentary series on American 
Culture) and "Living on Earth" (a show that 
explores the environmental issues that face 
us today). This is just the tip of the iceberg 
for NPR news and informational program- 

Offers special events 

They offer comprehensive day to day 
coverage along with special events, such as 
live coverage of the Clinton Econom ic Con- 
ference in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1992. 

NPR has a diversity of cultural programs 
that serve to educate the public in the dif- 
ferences in cultures, while providing many 
different ethnic groups programming that 
will be entertaining and sum ulating to them. 

Many musical programs such as " Af ropop 
Worldwide," "The Thistle and Shamrock," 
"Performance Today" and "Jazzset with 
Bransford Marsalis" range stylistically from 
tribal to classical to jazz. The theatrical and 
literary arts are represented on "NPR Play- 
house," There is even a comedy / informa- 
tional show called "Car Talk." 

NPR a strong base for CLU 

With a diversity of programs and nation- 
wide success, NPR promises to be a strong 
base for the programming of KCLU. And 
with con Li nous growth and openess to pub- 
lic participation, NPR is a great way for 
students to get involved with their radio

Kingsmen fall 
to Redlands 
for fourth 
straight loss 

CLU football to meet 
non-conference Azusa 
Pacific on Saturday 


Sports Editor 

The Cal Lutheran University football once 
again played a strong first half and then fell 
apart in the second half against Redlands 

The host Bulldogs scored 16 unanswered 
points in the second half to register a 23-6 
win over the Kingsmen. 

This coming Saturday, CLU will battle 
non-conference opponent Azusa Pacific 
University. The game will be played in 
Azusa under the lights. The kickoff is set 
for 7:30 p.m. 

The Kingsmen (1-4, 1-3) need to win 
their last four games of the season to finish 
with a winning record. 

"We're really kind of down in the dumps 
right now," explained receiver Billy Parra, 
on the attitude of the team. "Things are 
getting tough, but what we're really trying 
to do now is win these last four games for 
our seniors." 

The Kingsmen may be looking at a more 
conservative offensive approach against 
Azusa on Saturday. 

"We'll probably keep the ball on the 
ground a lot," said Parra, "and just throw 
when we have to. It looks like we'll be able 
to run, though." 

CLU's bad luck continued against 
Redlands last week. Offensively, the 
Kingsmen executed well with a total of 301 

Running back Terrance Thomas had all 
his gears working, as he piled up 1 1 1 yards 
on 24 carries. 

Ivan Moreno, used primarily for block- 
ing, also piled up 33 yards on eight carries. 

Parra again led CLU in receiving as he 
yanked down six passes for 98 yards, in- 
cluding a seven yard touchdown grab. 

The junior wide out from Pacoima has 
been a pleasant surprise for Kingsmen 
coaches and fans. Despite his size (5-foot- 
10, 180 pounds), his elusiveness has al- 
lowed him tremendous success this season. 

Quarterback Ryan Huisenga had one of 
his best games of the year. He threw for 225 
yards while completing 2 1 of 38 passes for 
one touchdown. 

However, despite the big numbers, it was 
the mistakes that again led to the demise of 
the "Purple and Gold." 

The score was tied 7-7 at halftime, but 
Redlands (3 - 1 - 1 , 2-0) took advantage of a 
Thomas fumble and a Huisenga intercep- 
tion to score their 16 second half points. 
Thomas' fumble led to a field goal which 
put Redlands on top for the remainder of 
the game, and the interception was fol- 
lowed with a 67-yard Bulldog TD run. 

The defense played well, giving up 296 
yards of total offense (148 through the air 
and 148 on the ground). 

The Kingsmen stifled the Bulldog pass-

CLU soccer comes up big 


News Editor 

The Regal's Soccer Channel~The 

Regals turned in their usual league perfor- 
mance with two more wins in SCIAC. 

•They defeated Redlands 3-0 and 
outplayed LaVerne recording a 4-1 win. 

•They are still undefeated in league and 
have won 45 consecutive games in SCIAC. 

•They continue their run through league 
at Whittier today and then take on a tough 
UC San Diego team on Sunday. 

The Kingsmen Soccer Channel-After 
dropping a game to Redlands 1-0 last 
Wednesday, the Kingsmen recovered to 
post a 6-0 win over La Verne. 

•They are now 4-2 in league play. 

•The men have very important upcoming 
battles at Cal Tech on Saturday and a non- 
league game against the UC San Diego on 

•Every SCIAC game is important as the 
Kingsmen remain in contention for the 
league title. 

The Regal's Volleyball Channel -The 
Regal 's continued the great season for CLU 
women's sports with a win over Pomona- 
Pitzer on October 11. 

•After several tough matches, the win 
was an easy one as the Regal 's cruised to a 
15-0, 15-4, 15-12 win. 

•The team seemed to be invincible 
through much of the match. 

•They are now alone in first place with a 
6-0 SCIAC record. 

•They will try to continue their domina- 
tion over SCIAC opponents with matches 
against Redlands at home of Friday, at 
La Verne on Saturday and at Whittier on 

•The game against Redlands is the last 
home game of the season, so everyone's 
support is needed to assure the outcome is 
the same as the rest of the Regal's league 
games this season. 

The Men's and Women's Cross-Coun- 
try Channel -At the SCIAC Eight Way 
Dual Meet, the men were unable to field a 
full team, but were represented individu- 
ally by Jed Colvin , Cory Stigile, Eric Burkett 
and Marc Barret 

•The Women were represented by run- 
ners Jill Feus, Kristi Rikansrud, Roeline 
Hansen, Lisa Loberg and Jill Mahre. 

•Their next meet will be the SCIAC 
Championships on October 29, where the 
men are hoping to be able to field a com- 
plete team and the women are hoping to 
pull ahead of Redlands and Cal Tech. 

The Football Channel-The Kingsmen 
once again played an impressive first half 
but were unable to sustain their great play 
in the second half. 

•The problem seems to stem from an 
attitude or an expectation that something is 
going to go wrong. 

•Losing is a disease, and the Kingsmen 

football team seems to be greatly infected. 

•The Kingsmen will try to find the cure in 

a non-league game at Azusa Pacific on 


•They will then search for their second 
league win against Pomona at home on 
October 29.

Lack of funding hurting CLU sports teams 

Too many CLU athletes must resort to using grossly inadequate athletic equipment 


Sports Editor 

The athletic programs at California Luth- 
eran University are responsible for provid- 
ing revenue, publicity, and tradition for the 
campus, making it an integral part of the 
school's success. 

CLU's athletic department needs suffi- 
cient funding to improve on its success. 
However, at most Division III schools, 
funding and endowments for the athletic 
department are minimal. Therefore, im- 
provements are hard to come by. 

CLU has gained tremendous recognition 
over the past few years for its dominance 
among its women's and men's teams. In 
just three short years of NCAA Division in 
affiliation in the Southern California Inter- 
collegiate Athletic Association, the 
Kingsmen and Regals have either won or 
shared 16 SCIAC Championships (an ar- 
ticle published two weeks ago in The Echo 
stated that CLU had fifteen titles to its 
credit, but the correct mark is sixteen. The 
1992 Regal softball championship team 
was ommitted). The athletes and coaches 
rank second to none, and the fans are be- 
coming increasingly more vocal. 

Programs must rely on coaches 

However, the strength of these programs 
have come mainly from the coaches who 

built them, not from the money that was 
given to the programs. 

There are several factors that can be 
addressed as ways of improving the athlet- 
ics at CLU. As stated two weeks ago in The 
Echo, the facilities may be the most obvi- 
ous need for renovation. It's no secret that 
the gym, football stadium, and baseball 
diamond all have their respective short- 
comings. There are several SCIAC teams 
and Division III teams (primarily back 
East) who have very attractive athletic 
fields. The task to improve them at CLU 
can be done — it's not impossible. 

Many athletes are very frustrated 

And while the facilities could use some 
polishing, there are several other factors 
that could benefit from increased budgets 
in the athletic departments. When talking 
to players around the university, I found 
some frustrated athletes who brought to my 
attention some disturbing situations that 
are brought on due to lack of money. 

•The SCIAC Champion girls softball 
team was forced to use construction cones 
for batting tees last Spring. They also had 
a pitching machine that spent over half the 
year causing more problems than it was 

•The undefeated women's volleyball 
team was originally supposed to have 
matching black biker shorts for their road 

uniforms; it's the middle of the season and 
they still don't have them. It should also be 
noted that they all had to buy their own 
shoes for the season. 

•The men's baseball team is in a con- 
stant need for more baseballs, and the tarps 
they use to cover the pitchers mound and 
home plate have holes and cuts in them, 
causing the rain to soak the field. 

•The football team used to be treated to 
Kentucky Fried Chicken after their road 
games in past years; this year they get those 
tasty sack lunches. Earlier in the year they 
traveled to the University of San Diego for 
a game.. .a night game that is. Did they 
spend the night in San Diego? No, they 
jumped on the bus and made it back at 2:30 
in the morning. 

•Three-time SCIAC Champion men's 
basketball team is also rewarded with sack 
lunches after road games. One player also 
griped that they currently have only two 
good basketballs for their open gym. 

These problems are evident among the 
coaches and athletes within the university. 
It's really a shame that we can't even feed 
these athletes decent food after long, hard 
fought games. It's even more of a shame 
that we have girls hitting off of construc- 
tion cones to prepare for a tough Redlands 
series. You can't tell me that girls from UC 
San Diego, Fresno State, or Fullerton are 
doing that. 

Department has some positives 

Despite the negative talk, there is obvi- 
ously some beauty to the athletic depart- 

CLU features the following: tremendous 
coaching; an excellent training room with 
helpful and knowledgeable trainers; a plush 
locker room; a nightly laundry service for 
athletes; media guides and good publicity 
for most sports; a tradition of winning and 
domination; and a shared support from 
separate athletic teams to one and other. 
It is these qualities that make CLU the top 
athletic department that it is. Hopefullv 
CLU can build on the tradition that is 
currently here, and with teams getting bet- 
ter and better each year, it looks like they 
are doing that 

However, if any top-notch recruits are 
out there, they'll probably be impressed by 
the qualities mentioned above. They'll 
know they are coming to a great university 
with a community feeling and a winning 

They also know that they might be pay- 
ing for their own shoes, hitting Softball's 
off construction cones, and using old bas- 

These may be trivial aspects in the eyes 
of some people, but it's trivial aspects that 
are sometimes the difference between an 
athlete choosing CLU or an athlete choos- 
ing UCSD.

Cross country 
builds toward 
the future 


Staff Writer 

CLU cross country coach Derek Turner 
took over the team this season with some 
lofty goals in mind. He was the new coach 
of a team just getting on its feet and hungry 
for success. 

However, CLU has failed to recruit run- 
ners in past years, which has resulted in a 
history of subpar teams. 

As Turner took the reins of the team this 
season, though, he decided to steer it in a 
new direction. 

"It's time to get this program going," he 
said. "Eventually we want to have teams 
that can compete with Division I and Divi- 
sion II schools." 

Achieving this goal is bound to be a 
lengthy process, which Turner knows very 
well. He believes that it should take three 
to four years to mold the CLU team into 
one that can compete with the top SCIAC 

By next season, he says that he hopes to 
"get a solid program established (and) make 
training fun." 

Turner has already begun making prepa- 
rations for next year. He has started by 
contacting coaches throughout Ventura and 
Santa Barbara counties, as well as studying 
the results of local high school cross coun- 
try meets. 

Turner has sent letters to over two hun- 
dred potential runners for next season. He 
is not only contacting the top men and 
women from each team, but also those 
number two, three, and four runners who 
have shown potential. 

He says that one of his goals in this area 
is to "take those recruits that aren't the 
number one guy or girl in school (and) 
develop them." 

According to Turner, CLU has a great 
deal to offer potential cross country run- 
ners. He feels that the local beaches, can- 
yons, and mountains are ideal for practices. 
In addition to this, it is a very closely knit 
team that creates a good atmosphere at 
meets and practices. 

The latest of these meets was the eight- 
way SCIAC dual meet on Saturday. CLU 
had some impressive showings and many 
of the runners improved on their personal 
best times. 

Both teams return to action on Oct. 29 at 
the SCIAC championship. 

Jed Colvin led the Kingsmen in the 
SCIAC meet, finishing eleventh in a field 
of about seventy-five runners. Turner was 
very pleased with Colvin's race, saying, 
"Jed looks ready to run a big race at the 
conference championships in two weeks. " 
Colvin was followed by Eric Burkett, 
Cory Stigile, and newcomer Marc Barrett, 
who all ran very well. 

The Regals also had a strong showing at 
the meet. "I'm very proud of the girls," 
said Turner. "They have really come 
through this year and have a chance at 
beating some teams." 

The Regals finished eighth of the eight 
teams in the meet, but narrowly missed 
beating University of Redlands, the Uni- 
versity of LaVeme, and Cal Tech. 



CLU soccer seeks SCIAC titles 

Regals headed for perfect season, Kingsmen three wins from title game 


Staff Writer 

The Regals and Kingsmen soccer teams 
moved a step closer to Southern Califor- 
nia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference 
championships on Saturday with wins 
against the University of LaVerne. 

Both teams will return to action today 
in conference matches versus Whittier 

The Regals 4-1 victory on Saturday was 
preceded by a 3-0 victory versus the Uni- 
versity of Redlands on Wednesday. 

Over the course of the two games, they 
received goals from Emily Kanney , Andy 

Sorenson, Kim Holman, Carla Crawford, 
and Jill Gallegos. 

The Regals have only three SCIAC 
games left on their schedule. If they can 
win those three contests, they will have 
finished the season with a 12-0 record in 
conference games, to add to their 48-0 
record in conference over the past four 

"We're hoping that everybody will con- 
gratulate them on campus because that's a 
great feat," said head coach Dan Kuntz. 

The Regals are still waiting for the deci- 
sion on whether or not they will compete 
in the playoffs. 

The 6-0 victory by the Kingsmen on 
Saturday came on the heels of a 1 -0 loss to 
Redlands on Wednesday. Brian Collins 
led the Kingsmen offence versus La Verve 
by scoring three goals. Freshmen Edwin 
Astudio, Sebastian Alvarado, and sopho- 
more Ryan Dobbins also chipped in one 
goal apiece in the victory. 

Despite the tough loss to Redlands, the 
Kingsmen remain undefeated in West 
SCIAC competition. With victories ver- 
sus Whittier and Cal Tech this week and 
Occidental College next Wednesday , they 
will be in the SCIAC championship game 
on Oct 30.

30th annual Homecoming a rip roaring good time 

Football team wins close game, Harper and Culwell elected King and Queen, dance a success 


News Editor 

Brain Harper and Kelly Culwell were 
named Homecoming King and Queen at 
Friday's Coronation Ceremonies. 

"I was totally surprised to win. I never 
thought I would win. Its an honor," said 
Harper, a senior drama major. 

Culwell expressed similiar thoughts on 
the night. "I was really glad to see Brian 
win. He's a great guy. He deserved it," said 
the senior biology major. 

On the nomination ballot this year for 
Homecoming court, the candidates had to 
display a commitment to the university 
through activities and participation in cam- 
pus events. 

Both Culwell and Harper are active in the 
CLU Drama club and Harper also supports 
the school through various programs in- 
cluding Presidential Hosts. 

The Homecoming festivites included 
Coronation, a parade on Memorial Park- 
way, the alumni picnic in Kingsmen Park 
and the Homecoming football game. 

The parade down Memorial Parkway 
provided much entertainment as many stu- 
dents and faculty participated. Being a west- 
em theme, much of the parade featured 
cowboys, cowgirls, horses and gunfighis. 

However, a car with a group of students 
dressed in 70's attire singing and dancing to 
the tunes of "The Brady Bunch," a fire 
engine carrying the cheerleaders, cars driv- 
ing faculty and the Homecoming Court, 
clowns, a Kingsmen and much more also 
paraded down the busy street. 

The Lord of Life float won first place in 
the contest. Other winners were the seniors, 

The seniors took third place with their float, "CLU's First Saloon" at Saturday's Homecoming parade.

Pros and Cons of Prop. 187 debated during open forum at CLU 

Opens forum answers important questions on topical issue in upcoming vote for Californians 


Staff Writer 

The pros and cons of Proposition 187 
were expressed during an October on-cam- 
pus debate between Glen Spencer of the 
Voices of Citizens Together and Randy 
Basset Esq., local attorney. 
The event was put on by the Global Peace 
and Justice Committee in order to give 
people the opporttunity to hear both sides of 
the issue surrounding the proposition. 

The proposition, "Makes illegal aliens 
ineligible for public social services, public 
health care services (unless emergency un- 
der federal law), and attendence at public 


It also "Requires state/local agencies to 
report suspected illegal aliens." 

Glen Spencer of the Voice of Citizens 
Together, spoke on the benefits of the propo- 
sition. He showed the audience the prob- 
lems which California faces in its rapidly 
growing illegal immigrant population. He 
said, 'This is going to explode, we've got to 
do something about it." 

Spencer felt that the citizens of California 
could no longer pay for this. He cited ex- 
amples of how taxes were being used on 
non-tax paying illegal immigrants. Accord- 
ing to his findings, "Our health care system 
is being ripped off." 

Spencer closed his opening argument by 
saying, "We have a problem in California 
that is not only serious, but desperate." 

Randy Basset Esq., an attorney, spoke 
against the proposition. He disagreed say- 
ing, Proposition 187 does nothing with re- 
spect to the border or those who hire illegal 
immigrants. "We have to close the borders, 
and this proposition doesn't do it," Basset 

Basset felt that one of the major flaws of 
the proposition was the way it dealt with 
education. The proposition would require 
that children prove the legal status of their 
parents by Jan. 1, 1996. After 90 days, 
students would be expelled if they could 

prove neither their citizenship nor that of 
their parents. 

If a teacher has "reasonable suspicion" 
that a student is an illegal immigrant due to 

see PROP. 187, page 3

CLU host to important Congressional District Debate 


Contributing Writer 

Proposition 187, the Save Our State 
Initiative which addresses illegal immigra- 
tion, term limits and receiving money from 
Political Action Committees PACs were 
the most discussed issues during the 24th 
Congressional District Debate between Ri- 
chard Sybert and Anthony Beilenson at the 
Cal Lutheran gym during October. 

CLU students and members of the com- 
munity were invited to meet these two 
candidates as well as the local candidates 
running for positions on the Nov. 8 ballot. 

Dr. Jonathon S teepee, CLU's professor 
of political science, was the moderator of 
this event. 

Beilenson opposes Prop. 187 because he 
said that it would be ineffective. "The two 
greatest concerns in California are denying 
jobs to illegal aliens and controlling our 
borders," Beilsenson said. He added that 
the federal government should reimburse 
stales for incarcerating illegal immigrants 

because it is their respon- 
sibility to do so. 

Sybert disagreed and 
said that "California kids 
should come first that is 
why we must send a mes- 
sage that California is not 
going to support illegal 
immigration any longer." 

The second important 
issue raised was term lim- 
its. Sybert said that ca- 
reer politicians halt legis- 
lation from passing and 
they don't know their 
constituency's needs and 
wants because they spend 

cient experience and 
knowledge about his 
position or Con- 
gress his term could 
be over. "Bureau- 
crats and lobbyists 
will be the only ones 
left with experi- 

The last heated is- 
sue was the use of 
PAC money for po- 
litical campaigns. 
Beilsenson said he 
does not take any 
PAC money and 

supports a ban on money from PACs and 
more time in Washington than in their special interest groups. "We need to match 


Beilsenson, on the other hand, opposes 
term limits. He said that "people have a 
right to elect who they like for as long as 
they like." He said term limits are bad 

public funds instead of depending on spe- 
cial interests for contributions," Beilenson 

Sybert said that taking PAC money from 
his district is okay because he will be

characteristic, he or she can turn the 
student over to the proper officials. 

Basset said that the expulsion would 
put many uneducated people on the 
streets therefore causing a rise in crime. 
In his rebuttal, Spencer said 
California's educational system is broke. 
Spencer feels clearing the schools of 
illegal immigrants would help to reduce 
this problem. 

Basset said in his rebutal, "All Ameri- 
cans are immigrants. This country was 
built by immigrants." 

After both sides were given the oppor- 
tunity to speak, the floor was opened for 

There were many questions of Spen- 
cer, where he was put on the spot to 
defend his view. 

Several times during the evening, Bas- 
set was questioned about his view of 
immigration. He responded by saying, 
"I do not support illegal immigration." 
Spencer was also questioned about 
who would do the agricultural work cur- 
rently done by illegal immigrants, be- 
cause most Americans would not want 
to do these jobs. He responded by asking 
who does this work in the midwest? 

He was also asked what type of harass- 
ment, if any, he thought would occur if 
this proposition passed. He did not think 
that this would be a problem. When 
further questioned about this issue, he 
responded, "If a student had the bubonic 
plague, wouldn'tyouwanttoknow about 

By this time, almost every hand in the 
audience was raised in order to ask a 
question. The questioning session was 
ended with a question for Basset regard- 
ing his thoughts on solutions regarding 
California's immigration problem. His 
answer was fixing the problems at the 
borders, something which he says is not 
taken care of with Proposition 187. 

For some, the evening shed some light 
on an issue that they had known very 
little about. For others, it was an oppor- 
tunity for people to speak their views 
about a proposition which greatly af- 
fects all California citizens.

Health Insurance? 
I'm only in college, do I need it? 

Commonly asked questions about CLU's mandatory 
student health insurance: 

Q. Is this good insurance? 

A. CLU 's student insurance plan provides up to $2,000 per year for outpatient medical 
care, and up to $40,000 for major medical /hospitalization. This is 100% better than no 
insurance at all, but many employers provide much broader coverage. If you have the 
choice of being covered under your employer's or your parents' health insruance, 
compare the plans to see which will give you better coverage. 

Q. Are prescriptions covered under CLU's health insurance plan? 

A. No. The only exception is $25 coverage for medicine needed for treatment of an 


Q. Can I use Student Health Services if I don't have CLU's student health insurance? 
A. Yes! Any student is eligible for care at Health Services. There is no charge for an 
office visit to see an RN, Nurse Practitioner, or physician. There are minimal charges 
for medication and lab fees if needed. Vaccines are also availble at low cost. 

Q. Why is the student health insurance bill listed as a "FINE" on my bill? I didn't do 
anything to deserve punishment. 

A. The "FINE" screen is used for charges other than tuition. The advantage of using 
this method of billing for health insurance is that there is no interest charged for items 
on this account, if the balance is carried over from one month to the next. In contrast, 
interest is charged for unpaid tuition charges. 

not take any PAC money out of his district. 
"Politicians should stop taking PAC money 
indirectly and lying about it to the public," 
Sybert said. 

Many people from the audience thought 
that the issue of PAC money stirred per- 
sonal attacks from both congressmen 
throughout the debate. "The debate was 
almost a total disregard for issues. It be- 
came a personal attack after attack and 
what's truly sad was that that's what the 
audience wanted to hear," said Jim Will- 
iams, a senior.

Ames speaks of joys, challenges of advising The Echo 

He is not a colleague or peer, but a contemporary to student journalists 


Communication Arts Instructor 

The core of my 
journalistic teach- 
ing and student 
media advising phi- 
losophy is embod- 
ied in one thought: 
students learn the 
most by being par- 
ticipants in their 
own education. 

As such, the suc- 
cess of journalism 
and student publi- 
cations programs 
depends on positive 
motivations of the 
people participat- 
ing in it. 
Locating students 
with strong character traits is not enough. Often the best 
prospects have many other choices; that is, they may have 
academic opportunities other than journalism. 

To lure the best students and retain them, the program 
must have the facilities, location and students must feel a 
strong sense of pride about the product they are publishing. 
Staff members are students first who are willing to make 
a commitment to excellence — in and out of the classroom. 
Second, they are journalists performing tasks that provide 
the campus with news, views and information. 

Therefore, the teaching atmosphere established by the 
instructor/ adviser is most influential in a student's educa- 
tion. As it works out for me, the art of teaching is assisting 
students to make their own decisions while writing and 
editing stories; taking, developing and printing photos; 
designing and laying out pages and selling, designing, 
scheduling and receiving payment for advertising. 
The intrigue lies in the individuality of the non-tradi- 

tional teaching assignment, with me always looking to see 
the most effective way to encourage professional stan- 
dards. Coupled with this is the fact that some things are 
more important than sorting out the information and 
putting it on paper. 

Participants should at least learn to respect and relate to 
others as student professionals. To carry this out, the 
concepts that I try to build upon are enthusiasm, determi- 
nation, integrity, persistence and loyalty to the team. 

I believe that to motivate students to take a personal 
interest in their own work, the instructor/adviser must be 
enthusiastically supportive. To provide the necessary avail- 
ability, I maintain an open door policy for one-on-one 
sessions with students to discuss their progress, problems 
and special needs. 

It has been my observation that the more interest I show 
in student learning, the more likely it is for students to 
effectively perform their tasks. 

Through involvement in classes and publications, stu- 
dents learn to work with their peers and the instructor/ 
adviser becomes a resource who coaches them through the 
publishing process. In that role, I am able to serve as a 
partner in learning for the editors, reporters and photogra- 
phers. Or to reflect on this another way, when I am 
advising, I serve as a member of the communication arts 
department faculty, not as the editor of the newspaper. 

Growth is a key part of the program 

Indeed, learning is an ongoing process for students and 
the instructor/adviser. Growth must be a part of the 
program. However, one thing is constant: students remain 
special, for they are a family of which I am a part, not as 
a peer or colleague, but as one who must effectively set the 

The most rewarding perk is observing the growth of 
students as individuals. At best, often I am a listening post 
when a reporter is having difficulty in appropriately re- 

sponding to an uncooperative news source, or an adver- 
tiser is long overdue in paying a bill or too many students 
wish to simultaneously use limited darkroom space. 

Analytical, creative, people skills important 

In sum, the three qualities I find importantare analytical, 
creative and people skills. Being able to analyze situa- 
tions, produce a product within an established framework 
style and make the best use of people's time and talents are 
imperative for continued respect of the publication. I work 
to achieve these qualities personally and look for them in 
the editors I choose. 

Frequently it occurs that a hidden, special aspect of the 
individual surfaces. It is growth, the most exciting aspect 
of teaching for the instructor/adviser to observe. 

I've often heard it said, 'There's so much more of you 
than anyone knows." It is my responsibility to assist 
students to come to grips with the importance of his or her 
experience and what can be derived from it. 

The difficult part of participation for me is not to be 
tempted to live for the student experiences of his or her 
education; rather, I should only be present to watch and 

As I think and try to exemplify my thoughts on the 
importance of learning and practicing life's skills, I keep 
with me an observation of the late television journalist, 
Harry Reasoner, who said, "I try to remain surprised 
enough at life that I might learn something new if I trip over 
it." On balance, this fits my interpretation of my own 
personal goal of assisting in the building of students' 

With apologies to the late Mark Twain, who said he 
came to San Francisco to work on a newspaper until he 
could find honest employment, I would like to continue 
being a journalism instructor and student media adviser as 
long as I can have employment that affords me such

Editorial: Flyers don't represent the issue at hand 

The Echo is published weekly by the Associated Stu- 
dents of California Lutheran University. Unsigned 
editorials reflect the majority view of the Editorial 

When the Diversity Committee set out to in- 
form the students of CLU about gay, lesbian and 
bi-sexual issues, one of their main objectives 
was to change the perception of the issue from 
one of controversy and anger to one of acceptence 
and understanding. PRIDE Week was shaping 
up to be the perfect event to start the.changing of 
attitudes and perceptions of the gay, lesbian and 
bi-sexual population. 

However, with the introduction of the pink 
flyers around campus advertising the event, it 
seems as if nothing has changed from years past 
when similar flyers were circulated. This is more 
of a step back than a step forward as the Diversity 
Committee originaly intended. 

One of the key words used in the flyers is 
"oppression." This word has a very negative 
connotation and only reaffirms the hostility felt 
by both sides of this sensitive situation. On the 
flyers, there is no mention of PRIDE Week as a 
time of education, understanding and accep- 
tance-only a triangle with different shades of 
gray. For people who are not familiar with this 
symbol, the flyers come across as threatening 
and overpowering. 

One of the flyers also states that, "The most 
violent element in our society is ignorance." 
This statement only fosters the hostile environ- 
ment already created by this issue. 

"Ignorance" does not equal hatred and the 
word "oppression" gives the week a negative 

It would have been better for all concerned if 

the flyers would have advertised the week as 
"PRIDE Week," which most everyone was ex- 
pecting. The flyers only cloud the issue and stall 
the attempts made by both sides to come to an 
understanding of this often misunderstood sub- 

PRIDE Week is "people relating through indi- 
viduality, diversity and education"-not oppres- 
sion, ignorance and negative beliefs. Not every- 
one in the world disagrees with people celebrat- 
ing their sexual preferences, but if one were to 
read the flyers, it would seem as if they do. 

There are people who accept the gay, lesbian 
and bi-sexual population as they are with no 
preconceived notions. These people are not ig- 
norant of the issue or negative towards the indi- 
viduals who choose this lifestyle. They simply 
accept people for who they are— no questions 

And there are those people who don't accept 
the gay, lesbian and bi-sexual population. The 
tone of the flyers advertising PRIDE Week sug- 
gests that these people are ignorant, violent, 
oppressive and prejudiced. The people who 
choose to disagree with this lifestyle aren't doing 
so because they are "ignorant," but rather be- 
cause they might have been educated in a differ- 
ent way or simply have different beliefs. 

Instead of fostering an enviroment of educa- 
tion the flyers only enforce the stereotypes the 
event is trying to erase. Acceptance isn't one 
sided. It takes an effort from all sides. Isn't this 
one of the main goals behind PRIDE Week? 



Swanson disagrees with 
Lange's ideas of feminism 

November 2, 1994 

Head of Women's Studies 

The article on "equity feminism" in The Echo (Oct 19) 
troubled me. The writer made some sweeping generaliza- 
tions about the feminists of the '80's that did not in my 
opinion accurately describe most of the women and men 
- feminists - of that period that were working toward 
equality. Certainly any robust movement is strong enough 
to embrace proponents whose opinions vary and no one 
voice speaks for everyone in a given movement. Some 
feminists might fit your description, but to label a whole 
healthy, life-giving movement in such judgmental terms 
seems irresponsible to me. 

At the same time much of what you said about "equity 
feminists" would describe my own, and many mainline 
feminist's philosophy: equality, mutual respect, equal 
opportunity.personal responsibility, personal choice. Most 
feminists do not whine, or hate men, or "cry rape" or sue 
without cause. Most feminists (not just "equity femi- 
nists") are working for the day when human beings can 
live together safely, happily, peaceably in healthy and 
equitable relationships in homes, jobs and communities. 
It is important and helpful to look critically at any 
movement, and to express one's opinion openly. Name 
calling, however, is counterproductive. Shared goals are 
not enhanced when one tries to build up his or her opinion 
up by putting down someone else. If the cause is "equity," 
the cause is harmed by minimizing the reality of the rape 
culture that we live in. To deny the pain of the experience 
or to blame the victim is to be insensitive to the tragedy of 

How we work on those issues is a necessary debate in 
which there is honest disagreement. I believe there are 
things a woman can do to enhance her own safety. I agree 
with the writer of the article that women need to take 
responsibility for their own actions. I believe women 
making wise decisions about use of alcohol may be less 
vulnerable. "Getting hammered" as you called it, is in my 
view neither wise nor healthy, but it does not give a man 
a right to commit a crimel 

I also believe that men need to take responsibility for 
their own actions. Men making wise decisions about their 
own use of alcohol may be less likely to rape. "A level 
playing field" means neither person will take advantage of 
the other. "A level playing field" means mutual consent] 
Freedom and fun and fulfillment are privileges that should 
be equally available to women and men — and for each 
one, freedom carries with it a responsibility to the other! 

Let's be clear about the issue: regardless of alcohol use 
by either person, regardless of attire, regardless of gender, 
rape is wrong. Rape is a crime. No one, drunk or sober, 
deserves to be raped. No one, drunk or sober has the right 
to rape another person. 

Reporting rape is not whining — it is a necessary step in 
combating this crime. Of course false accusations are 
wrong. That too is a crime. However, accurately report- 
ing rape isessential if our rape culture is to change. Rapists 
need to take the consequences of their choices. For college 
students who rape that may mean suspension from school, 
social suspension and possibly jail. That is not a feminist 
philosophy — it is university policy and it is the law. 

If there is to be real equity, if there is to be no double 
standard, if there is to be a rape free environment — it will 
take all women and all men working together with mutual 
respect for each other to make it happen. It is the kind of 
a world I dream of for my daughter and my sons, my 
granddaughters and grandsons — and for each of you!

Lange clarifies idea of equity feminism 

I must respond to the letter submitted to The Echo by 
Kristen Nelson and Siana-Lea Gildard and to a letter I 
received from Kathryn Swanson. 

First, I must apologize for any misunderstanding of my 
position on "date rape." In no way do I advocate or 
condone the violation of any woman in any situation, no 
matter what her physical or mental state is at the time. 

As I said before, my idea of a perfect society is one in 
which men and women respecteach other as human beings 
and rape and physical abuse do not exist This society has 
not been achieved yet, which means that unfortunately, 
women must always be on their guard to protect them- 

The inability to respond, however, does not justify 
violation in any case, and the men who take advantage of 
that situation, whether the woman is mentally challenged 
or merely drunk, should be prosecuted to the full extent. 

I also do not believe that women should be discouraged 
from speaking up about rape and physical abuse, provided 
it actually happened. Innocent men should not be used as 
scapegoats to cover a woman's regrets or mistakes. I do 
realize that far too many rapes go unreported, and the ones 

that are reported often hurt the women more in the long 
run. Our justice system needs to be amended to protect the 
women that are truly victims. 

Second, I must defend my position on feminism. I agree 
that, "Feminism should not have to compromise its basic 
agenda of equal rights," but I question the tactics used to 
achieve these rights. I acknowledge that many women in 
the feminist movement have worked hard for the same 
ideals that I believe in today. These are not the women 
who have given feminism a bad name, and I apologize for 
making a generalization that the women of the 80s were 
"whining radicals." 

I do give some credit to the radical feminists for putting 
women's issues at the forefront of mainstream conscious- 
ness. However, the radicalism has turned many people 
away from the most important issues of feminism , mainly 
equal rights for all humans. As I said before, we need to 
gel back to issues that affect all people, such as education 
and crime. Education and enlightenment are the keys to 
the equitable society of the future.

California, let's go out and play 

California, let's go out and play. 
Let' splay hide-n- go-seek.

No, it's too easy of a game. 
Let's play teacher instead and 
I'll write you my 3 R's.

Now, let' splay doctor and 
I won ' t be your patient.

Or, because I got you sick. 
Well, you know it's not my fault. 
But, we know whose it is. 
"One. ..eight.,

This poem is written from a child's point of view. It 
reflects what might happen if Proposition 187 goes into 
effect. Innocent children will live in a land of dreams, but 
their dreams will never become a reality. They will 
psychologically trick themselves into believing they will, 
someday become doctors or teachers, when in fact they 
will not. They will look into your eyes with their empty 
souls and revolt hatred words as they spit on your face. 
You will blame them for your misfortune, foryour misery, 
and for your death, while you deny yourself that you're the 

one to blame. It is you who shall carry the cross and the 
guilt for those innocent, angel-like bodies that will die 
from such a proposition. It is you, who voted "yes" that 
I shall blame. You, who put money before humanity. 
You, who put hatred before love. Amen...

Mental illness overlooked 

I just want to say that the school is doing a great job 
putting on programs like Alcohol Awareness Week and 
AIDS Awareness Week. It is good to educate the CLU 
community about serious issues like these. 

Another serious issue is being overlooked, however. It 
is disturbing how little attention is being given to the 
mentally ill. October 2-8 was National Mental Illness 
Week, and nothing was done to educate students about 
mental illness. 

Many people suffer from mental illnesses. As with 
other sicknesses, mentally ill people feel pain. Debilitat- 
ing physical conditions often accompany mental ill- 

I salute the National Alliance for the Mentally 111 for 
promoting Mental Illness Week. It is important for the 
public not to forget that sickness and disease come in 
many different forms, and no matter what forms they 
take, they should all be taken seriously. We need to be 
aware that there are victims of these illnesses who need 
our help.

Homecoming is a time for remembering and reminiscing for CLU 
alumni. The memories from college last a lifetime, yet there are 
seldom times when graduates can come together and relive their 
experiences of those years. This year, alumni were welcomed back 
to "Dodge City" with a western-style weekend. At each moment, 
former CLU students were given the chance to share wonderful 
memories and to make new ones with old friends. With a Kingsmen 
victory on the football field, a successful homecoming parade, and 
a good time had by all, it was obvious that homecoming left both 
CLU students past and present with new memories of a successful

gion at CLU. 

Dr. Howard Rose 

Rose's contribu- 
tions to CLU are not 
relegated to PE and 
sports alone, how- 
ever. Rose and 
Clarie have coordi- 
nated the Senior 
Mentor Program 
together for the past 
four years. Clarie, 
who was Rose's 
high school sweet- 
heart, earned both 
her master's and 
bachelor's degrees 
while in her 50s at 
La Crosse. 

The goal of the 
Senoir Mentor Pro- 
gram, which began 

'Taking classes is the best way to meet 
the people of the campus," he says. 

Nodding in agreement, Clarie adds, "Stu- 
dents appreciate the older generation on 
campus because we're not a threat. They 
might even say to themselves 'Hey, if they 
can do it, I can do it!'" 

Because the students of today are so 
different from the time when Rose was 
young, taking classes could be an intimi- 
dating experience. 

For instance, when Rose was 20, he was 
jumping out of airplanes in Europe during 
WW II, something not many college stu- 
dents today can relate to. 

Rose enjoys the experience, nonetheless. 
He says that everything gets easier after the 
initial discomfort in class. And he adds that 
he is treated the same as every other stu- 
dent, something headmires in today'sclass- 

He says, 'The students are as enjoyable 
today as they were 10 or 20 or 30 years 

Likewise, students enjoy having Rose in 
their classes. 

"It is nice to see senior mentors intermix- 

ing with other students in college classes," 
says senior Chris Press, who was a class- 
mate of Rose's in Spanish class. 

As for how much longer the Rose's will 
stay at CLU, they say that they do not have 
a crystal ball. For now, they enjoy return- 
ing to their cabin in Minnesota every sum- 
mer, and admit that the most difficult part 
of being a senior mentor is being away 
from their family. 

Despite this however, the Roses have 
managed to find their way back to the little 
college campus in Thousand Oaks for the 
last few years. 

"We always say that this is our last year," 
Howard Rose says, "but the school and the 
kids always seem to bring us back." 

In a country that tends to discard the older 
generation, rather than appreciate it, CLU 
has chosen instead to take advantage of the 
knowledge and experience of past genera- 

"I love the opportunity to learn and to 
share in friendship with staff and a great

KCLU grand opening 'a momentous day' for CLU 

Students, faculty, staff and community turn out to welcome NPR station to Conejo Valley 


Contributing Writer 

After years of struggling, KCLU entered the FM air- 
waves on Oct. 20 with flair. The grand opening ceremo- 
nies lasted from 3:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m., and many 
people were impressed with just how far the station has 

Among those in attendance was Mike Fuller, resident 
director of Mt. Clef Hall and assistant coordinator of 
student activities for CLU. 

"We're a young institution," he said. "This is definitely 
a step in the right direction." 

Mark Schoenbeck, ASCLU president, agreed with Fuller. 
"I think the station is a good thing overall," he said . "It was 
a momentous day for the CLU community." 

The ceremonies included a VIP celebration from 3:30 
p.m. until 4:30 p.m., at which time the rest of CLU and the 
community were invited to attend. 

David Ruprecht, who has hosted "Supermarket Sweep- 
stakes" for the last five years on "Lifetime," was the 
emcee for the ceremonies. A guestof honor at the gala was 
Norman Corwin, the first writer to be admitted to the 
Radio Hall of Fame. 

Along with Carol Luedtke, Corwin gave a presentation 
that spoke of the power of radio. Ruprecht then invited Dr. 
Luther Luedtke on stage to join Corwin in symbolically 
turning on KCLU. 

In reality, the station was supposed to have gone on air 
at 5 that morning. However, the FCC had trouble turning 
it on, and KCLU did not officially go on air until 1 p.m. 

To the outsider, the celebration went on without a hitch. 
Community members and students alike made use of the 
covered tables provided, and areas were set up where 
people could offer their monetary pledges and support. 

'Tie jazz band "Umoja Quintet" played and food and 
drinks were offered along with a cake that portrayed most 

of the geographical area that will receive KCLU program- 

Designed to be a community service for Ventura County, 
KCLU is the only station in the area that is a member of 
National Public Radio (NPR). 

Before KCLU, an NPR station could be picked up from 
Santa Barbara but listeners in the community are generally 

pleased that they finally have their own station. 

Warren Amole, a new resident in Thousand Oaks, was so 
pleased with the idea of KCLU that he became their first 
member. Before the station had even gone on the air, he 
sent a check for $100. 

"I can only tell you that I am going nuts because I can not 
consistently get "Morning Edition" or "All Things Consid- 
ered," Amole said in a letter accompanying his check. 

Two of NPR's more popular shows, "Morning Edition" 
and "All Things Considered" are two examples of the 
shows that will be played on KCLU. 

Other NPR programs that will be featured include "Car 
Talk," a weekend talk show about repairing cars, and 
"Fresh Air," a show that offers a "fresh" look at contempo- 
rary culture. 

KCLU also features local community shows and spends 
much of its time playing contemporary jazz, its musical

Mighty Mighty Bosstones- 'Question The Answers' 


Staff Writer 

What Washington D.C.'s Bad Brains did for the fusion 
of reggae and punk in the late 1970s through the 1980s, 
Boston's Mighty Mighty Bosstones are doing now by 
successfully mixing impeccably tight upbeat ska with 
steadfast and furious hardcore ri fling. 

Unlike the Bad Brains, who usually separated their 
reggae songs from their punk numbers, the Bosstones 
opt to combine both elements in their songs. What 
appears at face value to be a ska number will suddenly 
and without prior warning turn into grinding hardcore 
jam, but at the same time will continue to sound like 
a ska song. 

Due to their inability to be thrown under just one 
classifiable heading, the Mighty Mighty Bosstones have 
secured a position as one of the most exciting new bands 
in music today. Their incredible studio albums are only 
rivaled by their infamous live performances, which in- 
clude the band decked out in plaid from head to toe. 
Anyone who has seen the Bosstones live will tell you that 
it was one of, if not the best show they have ever seen. 

On "Question The Answers," their second studio 
album for a major label, the Bosstones spit out forty 
minutes of concrete proof why everyone should pick up 
this record. Lead singer Dicky Barrett's voice still sounds 
as graveley as a chain-smoking Louis Armstrong, espe- 
cially on "Pictures to Prove It." The Bosstones' flawless 
hom section is put to great use on "Hell of a Hat," which 

segues back and forth from smooth verses to searing in- 
your-face choruses. The album's best two tracks are "A 
Sad Silence" and "Stand Off," the latter of which is a great 
ska track that sounds a little like the Untouchables' 1985 
ska ballad "What's Gone Wrong?" except for the trade- 
mark Bosstones infusion of distorted guitar lines through- 
out the song. 

There are no bad songs on "Question The Answers," 
just twelve solid tracks that should satisfy any listener. 
You can almost hear the album itself begging to be 
played at a party, where the atmosphere would change 
in a matter of seconds if it was. The Mighty Mighty 
Bosstones are definitely worth checking out, both in 
person and on record, I'll bet my record collection you 
won't be dissapointed.

CLU football soars to Homecoming 
victory over Pomona-Pitzer, 17-16 

Kingsmen set to travel to Whittier College on Saturday 


Sports Editor 

The CLU football team played a sterling 
fourth quarter in a tension-filled, pressure- 
packed 17-16 homecoming victory against 

The Kingsmen could not have picked a 
better time to pull off a big win, as they 
thrilled a massive and boisterous crowd of 
alumni and students. 
The excitement and fireworks started late 
in the game. At the end of the third quarter, 
the Sagehens held a 16-3 lead over CLU, 
and it looked as though the capacity crowd 
would be sent home disappointed. 

However, two long touchdown passes by 
ever-improving quarterback Ryan 
Huisenga was enough to give the "Purple 
and Gold" a huge come-from-behind win. 

"It felt good to reinstate the tradition of 
winning homecoming," said senior safety 
David Harris. "We could really feel the 
support of the fans and they really helped 
aid in the comeback." 

The turning point of the game may have 
come when CLU actually had their backs 
to the wall. 

In the third quarter, the Sagehens ran the 
ball into the end zone for a 3-yard touch- 
down run to make it 16-3. 

However, it was the missed extra point 
that provided hope and optimism for the 

"I remember that when they blew the 
extra point," said Harris, "coach (Ben) 
McEnroe said 'that's the break we needed; 
now we're going to win this game seven- 
teen to sixteen! ' He kind of gave us a little

The comeback started with Huisenga 
throwing a perfect 3 1 -yard scoring strike to 
Steve Roussell. And with just 4:30 left in 
the game, Huisenga tossed probably his 
prettiest pass of the year. It was a 63-yard 
bomb down the sideline to a streaking 
Terrence Thomas. Huisenga hit him with a 
perfect spiral as he enabled Thomas to run 
under it without breaking stride. Once he 
had the ball he hustled off to the end zone. 
Kicker Dan Leffler knocked the extra point 
through the uprights, making the final score 

However, the Kingsmen weren't able to 
celebrate right away. The Sagehens look 
the kickoff and promptly marched down 
the field at will. They look the ball to 
CLU's 19-yard line. With seven seconds 
left, they sent iheir field goal unit onto the

Sports Editor 

The CLU football team suffered a crushing blow last week after notifying 
the National Collegiate AthleticAssociaiion (NCAA) and the Southern

an ineligible player, had played in the Sept. 17 game against Claremont-

"I am taking only six units," Lundring said. "I would have taken eight if

(in undergraduate studies)." 

The oversight was discovered by CLU on Oct. 2 1 , the day before the game

Regals soccer denied NCAA playoff 
berth despite 14-5 season record 

Burgess, Crawford are the last two members of CLU dynasty 

Sports Editor 

The CLU women's soccer team went on 
a roller coaster ride over the weekend; 
Actually, to put it in simple words, they 
didn't, but their emotions did. 

Saturday afternoon, the Regals played a 
hard fought match against Pomona-Pi tzer. 
The game went into overtime and was 
finally settled when Laura Heifner's pen- 
alty kick gave CLU a 2-1 win and the 
undisputed possession of their fourth 
straight SCIAC Championship. 

The Regals could hardly contain their 
happiness as they ran around the field with 
the SCIAC trophy hoisted in the air. 

However, all the happy and joyful emo- 
tions were not long-lasting. 

The next day, the Regals all gathered 
together at senior Shelly Burgess' apart- 
ment to receive word from the NCAA 
selection committee, to see if they were to 
be voted into the playoffs. 

To the average fan, it would seem quite 

obvious that CLU was a shoe-in for the 

NCAA Tournament; a 14-5 record, 1 1-1 in 

SCIAC, and a conference title. 

However, to the NCAA committee, that 
just wasn't good enough. CLU was denied 

their fourth straight trip to the playoffs. 

"This really hurt bad," said Burgess, who 
along with Carla Crawford, were the only 
twoseniors on the team. "In the past, they 've 
always taken two teams from the West, but 
this year they look one (UC San Diego). 
The whole thing is real political, they just 
don't think the West is real strong." 

Burgess was obviously miffed; it was her 
first time in four years that she won't see 
the playoffs. 

"I'll definitely be missing something," 
she said, "but it was real exciting to be part 
of a successful program. I was able to play 
in a great era." 

A great era it was. Burgess and Crawford 
should be commended for belonging to 
perhaps one of the finest SCIAC dynasties 

They are the only two Regals who have 
been together since the 1991 season, the 
first season CLU was admitted into the 
SCIAC. Since then, the two have been on 
four SCIAC Championship teams, played 
in three NCAA Tournaments, played un- 
der two head coaches (George Kuntz in '9 1 
and '92; brother Dan in '93 and '94), and 
tallied an amazing 47-1 SCIAC record. 
Without a doubt, these two women were 
instrumental factors in starting and main- 
taining the winning tradition in Regal 's 

Jill Gallegos also had a tremendous sea- 
son for the Regals.

Regals clinch 
SCIAC title 

bespite championship, CLU 
suffers first conference loss 


Contributing Writer 

Once again, the CLU volleyball team 
was successful with a win over Whittier 
Colege last Tuesday, adding to their un- 
beaten record of 10-0 in conference play. 

The Regals play their last game of the 
season at Pomona-Pitzer on Nov. 1. 

The defeat of Whituer (15-5, 15-6, 15- 
9), made the Regals SCIAC champions. 
This is the first winning season for 
women's volleyball in four years in 
SCIAC, and also the first winning season 
under second year head coach, James 

On Friday, the Regals lost their first 
game of SCIAC. They played Occidental 
and the two teams were evenly matched 
throughout the contest. When one team 
made a good play, the other team would 
come back just as strong. Occidental and 
CLU played five sets with one team win- 
ning a set and the other winning the next 
until the outcome was finally decided. 

By the end of the night. Occidental 
came out on top with a final score of 15-

They played a good game." 

CLU cross country competes in 
SCIAC championship meet 


Staff Writer 

The CLU men 'sand women's cross coun- 
try teams competed in the SCIAC champi- 
onship meet on Saturday in a somewhat 
unusual position. Although both finished 
last, they fielded enough runners to qualify 
as teams. 

They are scheduled to run next at the 
NCAA division III regionals on Nov. 1 2 at 
Prado Park in Chino. 

The men were led by Jed Colvin, who 
finished 27th in the race despite feeling ill. 
He was followed by Cory Stigile and Eric 
Burketl, who finsihed 29th and 41st, re- 
spectively. Marc Barrett and Matt McClo JrJ 
also competed in the meeL 

The women were once again led by Jill 
Fuess, who finished 3 1st She was fol- 
lowed by Roeline Hansen, Lisa Loberg, Jill 
Mayer, and Erin Meyer. 

Head coach Derek Turner was pleased 
with his team's performance. "This team 
has come a long ways this season," he said. 
"There has been a lot of improvement at the 
end of the season, which is the way it 
should be. After I recruit, we'll be com- 
petitive next season." 

This improvement could be seen in the 
women at the meet, where four of the five 
bettered their times from the previous race. 
Il could also be seen in the men as Stigile 
improved his previous lime by three min- 
utes and Barrett bettered his by four min-

Professor speaks 
of strong Lutheran 
heritage at CLU 

New building proposal presented 
to have offices and classrooms 


News Editor 

A strong admiration for Lutheran heri- 
tage was expressed by Dr. Richard Hughes, 
Pepperdine University religon professor, at 
a Monday meeting of the CLU faculty. 

He was also on campus on Oct. 31 speak- 
ing about "Nurturing a Civil Community: 
The role of religon." Due to time con- 
straints, he was unable to address the entire 

"Lutherans have a geat deal to offer 
schools of higher education," Hughes said. 
They have a "tradition that has the ability to 
sustain its religous background," he added. 

Hughes is participating in a nationwide 
Lilly Foundation funded project whose fo- 
cus is the quality of Christian higher educa- 
tion. In addition to his own campus, whose 
affiliation is the Churches of Christ, he is 
studying CLU and St. Olaf College in Min- 
nesota among the 16 schools being ob- 

His discussion focused on three areas: 
paradox, limits and break through. 

Speaking of Christianity being a paradox, 
he said it "lives in nature and in grace 
simultaneously." Through Christianity, 
there is "a capacity for genuine dialogue. It 
seems to be a very natural outgrowth of 
Lutheran heritage," he added. 

Regarding the limits, Hughes said, "All 
humankind are sinful." 

He suggested that "because of the empha- 
sis on limits and paradox, the Lutheran 
heritage has the capacity to break through. 
Genuine Lutheranism can never absolutisize 
its statements." 

Hughes said that revising the CLU Mis- 
sion Statement "will be a task well worth 

Dr. Luther Luedtke, university president, 
commended Hughes for his remarks and 
interest in the Mission Statement. Then he 
opened the floor for questions and sugges- 
tions about the revised statement and said 
he would appreciate further comments. 

In other business, Dr. Jarvis Streeter, 
religon professor, shared the plans for the 
development of a new office and classroom 
building to be located where the Regents 
offices are now located. 

The proposal calls for six classrooms that 
will hold 40 students, ten classrooms that 
will hold 25 students and faculty offices.

PRIDE: C hurch speaks 
about gay, lesbian issue

There is a possibility if everybody realized 
they knew someone gay, we could get rid of 
homophobia. That's one of the main rea-

Piga first formally came out while he was 
a member of a fraternity in college. He felt 
that most of his friends already suspected 
his being gay, but he eventually made it 

By coming out, Piga "felt like a resource

He spoke highly of the support he re- 
ceived from his parents who ended up found- 
ing a chapter of PFL AG (Parents and Friends 
of Lesbians And Gays) in their small com- 

"Coming out is something we do every- 
day," Piga said. 

Unlike the other speakers, Chiasson did 
not openly live her life as a lesbian until 
after 16 years of marriage and two daugh- 

She married "a wonderful man that was 
everything (she) was supposed to want." 

Chiasson did not fully come to grips with 
her sexual orientation until she nearly died 
while going through a third pregnancy that 
led to a miscarriage and her near death. 

"My whole life flashed before my eyes, 
and it was empty. ..I felt like I had been in 
the closet all my life, and I finally turned on 
the light," said Chiasson of her near death 

The evening ended with questions from 
the audience. 

Three CLU clubs 
gather for time 
of leisure, games 
and fun 

They play volleyball at 
barbecue in New West 


Contributing Writer 

On Sunday, November 6, 1994, 
the Asian- American Association, the 
Latino StudentOrganization, and the 
United Students of the World came 
together for a barbecue and volley- 
ball tournament in New West. Mem- 
bers were encouraged to associate 
among each other by helping out 
with cookin the food and playing 
volleyball. Of the 30 members in 
attendance, almost everyone whole- 
heartedly participated in the tourna- 
ment. Those without the knowledge 
of the game were quickly taught by 
their teammates. 

The barbecue lasted until the end 
of the last volleyball game at dusk. 
Members of each of the three clubs 
were well-satisfied with the barbe- 

'The food was good, and I had a 
good time," Tomoko Gushima a 
team captain said. 

"I thought it went well," Richard 

In response to one of the things hetero- 
sexuals can do to show their support for 
gay, lesbian and bisexual rights, Shanower 
said, "If you are not gay, speak up if 
someone tells gay jokes that are offen- 

Monday nights forum, "The Never-end- 
ing Debate: The Church and Homosexu- 
ality," focused on the different aspects of 
the religion and homosexuality issue. 

Just as people have difficulties talking 
about the issue of sexuality, "churches have 
also had difficulty talking about sexuality," 
Knutson said. 

The campus pastor went on to talk about 
the churches overall view of homosexual- 

"We're moving toward understanding the 
issue, but we're still in the process," Knutson 

CLU Students listen to a speaker at a PRIDE event Photo by Paul Gregory 

Unlike the forum on Sunday, this event 
drew a large crowd. 

The discussion was led by Campus Pas- 
tor Mark Knutson, Associate Professor of 
Religion Dr. Jarvis Streeter and newly 
appointed Bishop and Assistant Profes- 
sor of Religion Dr. Paul Egertson. 

Knutson felt, "All the hubbub surround- 
ing this issue gave the campus life." 

Egertson spoke of the gay, lesbian and 
bisexual support group of the Lutheran 
church, Lutherans Concerned. This moder- 
ate organization wants to bring the church 
into "dialogue" on the issue. 

He also spoke of the meaning behind the 
phrase "Reconciled in Christ" This means 
a church that makes a welcome statement to 
gays and lesbians.

Streeter used his time to discuss the view 
the Bible has of homosexuality citing that 
out of the many biblical verses, only about 
half a dozen deal with the issue at hand. 

"We want to be faithful to the Bible, but 
we must also realize the Bible is a time 
conditioned document," Streeter empha- 

He also warned of the dangers of misin- 
terpreting the Bible. 

.'There are lots of different ways to inter- 
pret the Bible, and many of these are abu- 
sive," Streeter said. 

Knutson ended the discussion by empha- 
sizing how important it is that everyone 
"continues the dialogue."

Senate best in years 

For the first time in many years, the ASCLU 
Senate has made definite strides in their at- 
tempts to get students involved in campus 
events. Most of this can be attributed to two 
people, Mark Schoenbeck and Nicole 
Whitmarsh. Last year when they won their 
elections, many people had misgivings about 
having juniors as student body president and 
vice president, but as their efforts have shown, 
these misgivings were unsubstantiated. 

They have continually shown a vested inter- 
est in the welfare of not only Senate, but in the 
student body as well. The Senate meetings 
have yielded a much better response from the 
student body as there is rarely any room to be 
found in the TV room of the SUB. 

They have been involved in controversial 
issues and have led the Senate effectively 
through the slow, meticulous political process, 
showing the new senators and commissioners 
the ins and outs of the ASCLU. 

Whitmarsh, who as vice president, is in the 
unenviable position of overseing all elections, 
has especially shown her professionalism and 
maturity these past few weeks, having to 
moderate the recent uproar over PRIDE Week. 

It would have been easy for them to just go 
through the motions and let this year slide by, 
without trying to make any improvements. 
But, as juniors they realize that they will be 
here next year, and any improvements made 
will affect them directly, consequently there is 
no chance of "Senioritis" setting in to disrupt 
the Senate. 

It seems that their vibrant attitude is catching 
for it looks like this is shaping up to be the best 
ASCLU Senate this campus has seen in many

Desire to be Catholic priest drives CLU alum to write play 

'where the unknown god abides' deals with issue of women as Catholic priests 


Contributing Writer 

"where the unknown god abides" is the second play in a 
series of three, pertaining to the first women in the Catholic 
priesthood. At the present within the Catholic Church, 
women are not allowed ordination; therefore, this cycle of 
plays is a commentary on what is yet to be. 

It does not take a "wine and 
roses" view of women's ordina- 
tion. Rather, the play addresses 
many of the questions and compli- 
cations that will arise with such a 
change. It does not express a pessi- 
mistic view, but a realistic one. 

I conceived and wrote the play during the 
summer of 1993, partially to make a statement and 
partially to reconcile some unfinished business within 
myself. My original vocation in life was to be a priest; of 
course, during my Catholic school education I was chided 
that such a calling was not possible. 

As a child, I could allow such a restriction to be placed 
on me. As an adult, I questioned it severely - so much that 
I went out and did research on the subject I was appalled 
to discover that the main reason why my sex was banned 

from the priesthood is that, according to Medieval belief, 
a woman's menstrual cycle deems her "unclean," and 
therefore women are not pure enough to consecrate the 

I invite those of you at California Lutheran University 
who are Catholic, and non-Catholic, female and male, to 
see this play - if not for the ideas it challenges, then for the 
characters who will let you observe their pains with wit 
and anger. 
This is a play with women of several different ages and 
backgrounds. They are real people, not shallow card- 
board etchings of the Catholic religion. They con- 
front real and possibly disturbing conflicts 
that arise between themselves: par- 
ticularly the relationship between 
Pastor Margaret and her daughter. 
It is a play about Catholic women 
who struggle to figure out their existence and faith with 
God and each other. 

"where the unknown god abides." by SA. Sizemore, is 
a black box production of the California Lutheran Univer- 
sity drama department, produced in association with 
Flying M ouse Productions. It runs Nov. 28 and29 at 8 p.m. 
in the Little Theatre.

Improvements at the Registrar's Office 

Last year I always dreaded going to the Registrar's 
Office. The people who worked in that office were not very 
friendly, and it was difficult to deal with them . Since every 
student has to interact with this office, there were many 
problems and complaints made by the students. The most 
frequently voiced complaints were the following: not 
getting answers to questions about credits and classes, and 
inconsistent answers. 
This year when I walked into the office, I was pleasantly 
surprised. Friendly smiles and happy people greeted me. It 
was such a pleasure to work with these people. I no longer 
dread dealing with my class schedule through this office. 
I would like to thank the wonderful ladies who work in the 
Registrar's Office for their friendly and efficient service.

The good, the bad, The Echo 

First I would like to comment on the new look of The 
Echo. Increasing the size gives it more of a newspaper 
look. The white paper is a catchy way to make the news- 
paper more appealing. It gives it a much cleaner look than 
the newsprint and makes the print easier to read. 

I must also comment on the errors. I realize it is a brand 
new semester and it is difficult to put a newspaper together, 
but who are the proof-readers? A few of the more obvious 
mistakes were "latter" for "later" and "tonof."

A Message of Hope 

To all the people who voted No on Proposition 187.

All the way to the end. 

But keep it a peaceful war.

And keep the faith. 

Together we shall overcome this inhumanity.

Improv a hit 


Staff Writer 

The CLU Improv troupe put up a "Seri- 
ous Comedy" program, second of their 
monthly installments, last Friday in the 
Little Theater. 

Comprised of both drama and non- 
drama majors, the 10 actors (and actresses) 
clowned through the entire show, to cheers 
and howls from the audience. 

In spite of a monetary donation and 
having to brave the cold night winds, many 
spectators turned up brimming with enthu- 

The show started promptly at 1 1 p.m. 
greeted by thunderous applause from a 
capacity crowd. 

Featured prominently among the actors 
that evening were CLU's Homecoming 
King Brian Harper, and Queen, Kelly 
Culwell. CLU's mascot, Desta Ronning, 
was also there to liven things up, this time 
minus her costume. 

Dressed uniformly in flannels and jeans, 
the troupe managed to strike up a rapport 
with the audiences. 

Much of the evening's Droeram encour- 
aged participation from audience mem- 
bers, who were as much a part of the act as 
the performers themselves. 

The way the evening was structured 
also played a big role in cultivating a casual 
and relaxed atmosphere. 

The theater has no imposing stages or 
intimidating loudspeakers, just the actors 
and their audiences, joined together in an 
unlikely marriage of mirth, laughter and 

A large part of the evening's routine 
included dating games, one-acts, skits and 
musical performances complete with

tongue-in-cheek lyrics. 

Especially well-received were "Mama 
Never Let Me Be A Cowboy..." and 
"Vincent Van Gogh's Ear." 

Adam Sandler of "Saturday Night Live" 
would've been proud. 

As it's name "Improv" suggested, most 
of the items performed depended largely 
on improvisations, peppered with a high 
dosage of unsuspecting plot twists and 
belly turns. 

That's when the actors have to put their 
craft to test 

The troupe, expectedly, was great with 
ensemble acting and capable of thinking 
quickly on their feet. Their chemistry was 

However, good acting and quick think- 
ing does not guarantee a good script, which, 
most of the time, were loosely strung to- 

But, then again, they don't call it "seri- 

ous comedy" for nothing. 

The actors' earnestness also more than 
made up for the program's weaker points. 

The whole idea, after all, was not to put 
on a spectacular show of professional pro- 
portions but to have fun. 

And from the sheer energy, enthusiasm 
and response of both actors and audiences, 
"CLU Improv" more than fulfilled its prom- 
ise of nonsensical fun and impossible com- 

Minor Demons opens to small audiences 


Opinion Editor 

CLU's drama department opened their 
fall main stage production of "Minor De- 
mons" this past weekend in the Preus- 
Brandt Forum. 

The play, written by Bruce Graham and 
directed by Ken Gardner, drew small 
crowds all three nights of its opening 

"Minor Demons" centers around the 
dream of attorney Deke Winters, played 
by CLU alum Kevin Kern. Deke dreams 
of the first major case that he had just 
finished handling and the events that sur- 
rounded it. 

The case deals with a teenage boy , Kenny 
Simmonds, played by Christian Isley, a 
Thousand Oaks High School student. 
Kenny sexually assaults and then mur- 
ders a 13-year-old-girl. He confesses his 
crime to the police chief, Vince DelGatto, 
played by senior Josh Green. 

Deke must wrestie with the moral di- 
lemma he faces when he finds out that 
Kenny was not properly Mirandized, or 
read his rights. 

The problem, for him, not only lies in 
the fact that a confessed murderer could 
be let off on a technicality, but the officer 
who did not properly Mirandize Kenny is 
Vince, Deke's childhood friend. 

As Deke faces this internal conflict, a 
spark of romance ignites between him 
and another attorney at his firm, Diane 

Sikorski, played by senior Kelly Culwell. 
Diane not only provides a romantic interest 
for Deke, but she is also there to comfort 
him as he wresdes with his "demons." 

Kern clearly had a grasp of the pain that 
Deke was feeling as a recovering alcoholic 
and drug addict facing one of the toughest 
points in his life. Kem allowed the audi- 
ence to feel the struggles that Deke goes 
through as he recreates the events of the 
past in his dream. 

Just as Deke must struggle with his "de- 
mons," many of the other characters must 
do so also. Kenny's mother and father, 
played by sophomores Kristina Fresquez 
and Corey Evans, must deal with the fact 
that the son they raised is a murderer. 
Fresquez definitely brought out the self 
pitying and weak aspects of her character. 

The internal conflict which Kenny faces 
is possibly the most complicated of all the 
characters. He murdered someone, but at 
times he appears to have little remorse for 
the crime he committed. Isley played the 
character like he himself was experiencing 
the thought process of Kenny Simmonds. 
Gardner' s use of slides throughout Deke ' s 
dream was highly effective. Each slide 
portrayed a particular picture that flashes 
through Deke's mind throughout his dream 
of the events preceding the case. 

With recent events in the media such as 
the OJ. Simpson case, "Minor Demons" 
made the audience realize that there are 
personal struggles that exist throughout 
each of these media hyped cases. 

Even a hermetic monk has a better night life 
than what is found at CLU on the weekends 

Going to the ATM Is just about the most fun thing to do for 
some CLU students because it beats staying on campus 


Staff Writer 

It was a night that would have made a 
hermetic monk feel lonely. The air was 
cold, kissing my flesh with a piercing 
stillness. Each call of "Hello out there" 
echoed repeatedly, the only response 
being the chirp of a single cricket 
searching for a mate. 

You must be wondering what place I'm 
describing, and if it really exists. This is my 
account of a typical Saturday night at CLU. 
It begins when the sun goes down and 
continues until the ringing of the dawn 
bells in the morning. 

I don't understand the lack of weekend 
activity offered by CLU. I'm acquainted 
with enough of my fellow students to know 
that most of these weekend evenings are 
not spent in intense study. 

CLU is a Lutheran affiliated school which 
may explain a wish by some in the univer- 
sity hierarchy to keep the night life to a 
minimum, however there's a difference 
between a mellow atmosphere and a mor- 
bid one. 

The current mood of the campus on a 
normal weekend is one of murky solitude. 

If safety is a concern of the administra- 
tion, the fact that students are being driven 

to alternative avenues for enjoyment on 
weekend nights must be of interest. 

There is nothing to do at home so many 
CLU students are searching the streets of 
Thousand Oaks wild eyed and eager for 
something- anything- to bring a little ex- 
citement to their Friday and Saturday nights. 
But.there are some stars in the black hole 
of CLU entertainment. The recent Home- 
coming dance was a huge success and the 
thespians of the campus have allowed us to 
share their talent in a number of produc- 

If it wasn't for these few breaks in the 
monotony, the student body would surely 
be reduced to droning zombies watching 
reruns of "Who's the Boss" for some ac- 

Presently, students look to the movie 
theaters of Thousand Oaks and Simi Val- 
ley for pleasure, and occasionally frequent 
some of the local dance clubs (bars). 

There is such a lack of campus activity 
that going to the ATM invokes a smile 
merely because it is something different to 

No one is asking for CLU to arrange wild, 
funky, love fests. It would just be nice to be 
offered a few reasons other than having a 
quiet place to sleep for staying on campus 
for the weekend.

Career Center offers students best opportunities for landing jobs 

Assistant director of Career Planning and Placement gives students several avenues to gain experience 


Editor in Chief 

Phil Mclnlire wants you. He wants you to 
get a job, that is. 

After all, that is his job. As assistant 
director of Career Planning and Placement, 
he spends all day trying to find suitable 
internships and jobs for CLU students. 

"My job at the Career Center is to work 
with undergraduates and get them intern- 
ships andexperience for their careers. 

"Some of them don ' t have majors and we 
just help people gain the tools to do the 
career decision making process," he says. 
The Career Center offers a variety of 
programs that benefit the prospective gradu- 
ate and the undergraduate student as well. 
One of these is the weekly workshops 
that focus on interview skills, job search 
strategies and resume writing skills. 

"We offer workshops weekly on Mon- 
days and Fridays at 10 a.m. Interviewing 
and job search strategies are together in a 
seminar format and resume writing is held 
on a separate day." 

Mclntire adds, "I also do individual ca- 
reercqunseling forstudents who can't make 
it to the weekly workshops." 

Aside from the workshops, Mclntire also 
stresses the importance of internships, or 
co-operative education, which give stu- 
dents valuable experience for the job mar- 

"There are a lot of different internships. 

They can be unpaid or paid, for credit or for 
no credit, it just depends on what a student 
needs," Mclntire explains. 

"Basically, it's gaining experience as an 
undergrad that will help a student prepare 
for the working world after college. An 
internship helps the students learn skills 
that they can transfer to a career." 

"When the students graduate, they will 
be marketing themselves and these are 
skills that are marketable," he adds. 

Mclntire believes that it is never too early 
to start thinking about a career. 

"During freshman year we do basic inter- 
est testing and one-on-one meetings to 
explore different majors as far as what they 
want to do. 

"By the start of the sophomore year, 
however, students should start looking at 
internships to get a clearer picture of a 
specific occupation," Mclntiresays. 

"Sometimes a student changes majors 
and they want to know what they have to do 
career wise for their new major," he says. 

And though it is never too early to start 
planning for a career, Mclntire says that it 
is never too late, either. 

'These first two years are important in 
the overall career plan, but the last two 
years are definitely critical for landing a 
job after graduation. 

"When students become juniors we try to 
get them into internships and get them to 
the Career Expo. We also try to get them to 

do informational interviews with compa- 
nies so when they do graduate, they know 
what kinds of companies are out there. 

'They should also start developing a re- 
sume because they will need a resume to 
secure an internship even if they don't have 
a lot of experience." 

Summarizing, Mclntire says, "The whole 
point of an internship is to gain experi- 

"A student's senior year is definitely the 
time they should consider an internship 
and a resume should be put on file with 
Shirley McConnell." 

Internships and career planning are not 
all that the Career Center handles, how- 

Mclntiresays, "The Career Center also 
handles the State and Federal Work Study 
programs, on-campus jobs and off-campus 
part-time jobs. 

"In addition to this, the Career Center 
carries graduate school information and 
we can help students through the process of 
finding a grad school program that suits 
their needs and helps students find infor- 
mation for the GRE, GMAT and LS AT and 

other graduate school tests." 

Before coming to CLU, Mclntire worked 
as an area coordinator for Northwestern 
College in Iowa. He has been married for a 
year and a half and has worked at CLU 
since July.

Drama major enjoys 
acting, production work 

But plans to pursue the more 
stable life of advertising when she 
graduates from Cal Lutheran 


Features Editor 

Drama major Michelle Levine has not 
always been an actress. In fact, she spent 
much of her youth being what she de- 
scribes as "this shy little 12-year-old who 
was terrified to get up and do anything in 
front of anybody." 

Things changed when Levine was in the 
seventh grade. 

"I was put in our school production of the 
'Best Christmas Pageant Ever.' And ever 
since then, I've been hooked,"which ex- 
plains Levine's involvment in many dif- 
ferent productions at CLU.

"Currently I'm doing lighting for 'Mi- 
nor Demons.' I played Ruthie in "The 
Grapes of Wrath ' last semester and I stage- 
managed 'Jungle Book' this 
semester,"Levine says. 

She is a double major, majoring in com- 
munication arts as well. Her drama back- 
ground has ended up being the perfect 
compliment to her c om m u n ic auons classes. 
This semester, Levine's drama background 
has helped her gain a spot in the soap-opera 
that her television class is producing. 

"I am playing Dawn, an alcoholic soror- 
ity president. She's a closet drinker," 

"I think many of her character traits are 
like mine, except for the drinking part." 

Levine enjoys the opportunity to act and 
participate in all kinds of dramatic produc- 
tions. And she is flexible as to what pans 
she will play. She has already had a wide 
range of experiences , both behind the scenes 
and on the stage. 

Despite her love of the dramatic arts, 
however, Levine is skeptical that she will 
pursue drama as a career. 

She says, "Hopefully, I will go into ad- 
vertising. I really loveacting, but there's so 
few jobs out there. 

"I think that unless some really amazing 
job comes along, I don't plan to pursue iL 
It's just too risky."

CLU loses to Chapman; finishes the year at 4-5 

Rebuilding season for Kingsmen football team comes to a close with a 27-7 defeat 


Sports Editor 

The CLU football ended their season at

Chapman College. 

Despite having a football program in its 
first season, Chapman was able to over- 
power the Kingsmen throughout the con- 

Chapman's offense was especially pow- 
erful as they rolled up 3 1 3 total yards. Most 
of that came on the ground (236 yards) as 
three players rushed for over 50 yards 

CLU went scoreless in the first half, but 
finally broke through in the second half, 
when sophomore quarterback Ryan 
Huisenga threw a 34-yard touchdown pass 
to William Bringgold. 

At that point Chapman led the game 21- 
7, but CLU could not muster up any more 

Chapman's defense held CLU's offense 
all day, forcing the Kingsmen to punt 1 1

The senior, who will most likely be a

Chino under soggy and fairly sluggish 

The men's team was led by Jed Colvin, 
who finished 18th in the field of 57 
runners. He finished with a personal 
best time of 27:04 on the five mile 

Colvin was followed by freshman 
Cory Stigile who finished 38th and Eric 
Burkett, who finished 54th. 

"The men were very excited and they 
ran extremely well," commented head 
coach Derek Turner. 

Jill Fuess led the women at the meet 
with a time of 22:07 on the 5000 kilo- 
meter course. She finished 37th out of 
67 runners. 

Fuess was followed by Roeline 
Hansen, who finished 51st and Lisa 
Loberg, who finished 54th. 

Turner believes that this meet was an 
excellent way for his young team to 
gain experience. He believes that this 
added experience, along with some 
promising recruits, will bring success 
to the team in the upcoming years.

Special Thanksgiving edition for CLU sports 


News Editor 

The Football Channel — This lemon of a 
season left the Kingsmen with a sour taste 
in their mouths, as they were overmatched 
against a tough Chapman University team. 

The final score was 27-7, but the game 
wasn't even that close. 

The defense played well, but the offense 
was out of synch all afternoon. 

Despite their poor play, Terrence Tho- 
mas gained 102 yards on 35 tough carries. 

Ryan Huisenga was 12-32 for 160 yards. 

Chad Valousky had one interception and 
Lance Martin and Chris Peltonen were 
hitting hard all day. 

There was a huge enthusiastic crowd, but 
unfortunately there was not that much to 
cheer about 

An overheard conversation in the stands: 
Female: 'This is a bad game" 
Male: "Yeah, it really stinks" 

Regals Volleyball Channel— The 
Regals defeated Occidental on Friday night 
before losing to UCSD by a score of ( 1 5-6), 
(11-15), (15-10), (15-5). 

Darcy White, Tracy Litle, and Tara Tho- 
mas had 1 kills apiece. Liz Martinez added 
24 assists and 17 digs. 

The Regals finished the season with a 20- 
9 record. 

The Thanksgiving Channel — Being the 
last edition of The CLU Sports Network 
before Thanksgiving, it is time to be thank- 
ful for the athletic achievements CLU has 
witnessed this year. 

Thanks are in order for the Regals volley- 
ball team , which surpassed all expectations 
and made it all the way to The NCAA 
Division III West Regional womens vol- 

leyball final. 

They treated the school to a great season 
and with everyone returning they are sure 
to be even better next year. 

They deserve a huge pumpkin pie. 

Thanks are also in order for the Regals 
soccer team who finished league with only 
one loss. 

Although their winning streak ended, 
they dominated SCIAC and played well. 

The selection committee that omitted the 
Regals from the playoffs deserves to be 
cooked in an oven with a Thanksgiving 

Thanks are in order for the cross country 
team, who rarely fielded a full team but the 
participants that they had practiced hard all 

This year was its first step to building a 
strong, dominating program. 

They also deserve a pumpkin pie for their 
great effort 

Thanks are in order for the Kingsmen 
soccer team who played inconsistently but 

They were plagued by injuries and a lack 
of veterans, but much is expected of them 
in the future. 

They deserve pumpkin pie with whipped 

Thanks are in order for Thomas, who 
broke the CLU single season rushing record 
with 1,236 yards. 

He deserves the entire Thanksgiving 

Thanks are in order for the Kingsmen 
football team who recovered from a poor 
start to win three straight games before 
losing to Chapman. 

They finished 4-5 and deserve a turkey, 
but no cranberry sauce. 


Staff Writer 

The CLU women's soccer team faced 
some tough losses this season to squads 
such as UC San Diego, UC Irvine, Azusa- 
Pacific University, and Occidental Col- 

However, their toughest defeat came on 
Sunday, Oct. 30, to the NCAA selection 
committee, who decided to send just one 
team from the West to the playoffs this 

As a result, despite a 14-5 overall record 
and a Southern California Intercollegiate 
Athletic Conference championship, CLU 
will have to watch the playoffs from the 
sidelines as UCSD will be the lone repre- 
sentative from the division. 

The voting process that kept CLU out of 
the playoffs is somewhat complicated. 

The Division III women's soccer pro- 
grams in the United States are divided into 
seven regions. 

Each of these regions is allotted a mini- 
mum and maximum number of teams that 
can be sent to the playoffs. 

These mini mums account for 14 of the 20 
available playoff spots, leaving 30 or 40 
teams from across the nation fighting for 
six spots. 

CLU's Western region is given a mini- 
mum of one and a maximum of two playoff 
teams. It is these small numbers that have 
many people upset. 

"I think it's unfair to teams in the West, 
not just CLU," said Regals head coach Dan 
Kuntz. 'There have got to be at least two 
teams from each area." 

UCSD assistant athletic director Bill 
Gannon is the chairman of the Western 
region, which means that he votes on which 
teams go to the playoffs. According to 
him, the Regals were still in the running 
when the field was cut down to 1 1 teams 
fighting for the six spots. 

He casted his vote for CLU, and went so 
far as to vote no on accepting the final list 
of 20 teams. 

"There was no question in my mind that 
they (CLU) were one of the top 20 teams in 
the nation," he said. 

However, as is so often the case in Divi- 
sion III athletics, the West lost out to the 

'The West coming out on the short end of 
the stick isn't unusual," Gannon com- 
mented. "A baseball team in California 
can be number five in the nation, but might 
not make the playoffs. The voting power of 
Division III is anchored in the East" 

A victory over Occidental College to end 
the season would have given the Regals a 
better shot at the playoffs, though. 

"Perceptually, it hurt us because they 
(the voting committee) think that SCIAC is 
bad, but in truth it's not" said Kuntz. 
"SCIAC teams would compete well with 
teams in the east coast but rarely get a 

So as the playoffs get under way with 
primarily teams from the East and Central 
regions, CLU will have to sit and wait for 
next season. 

"Hopefully we'll be in the running next 
year," said Kuntz. "We'll keep a positive 
attitude until then."

Regals basketball looking 
forward to breakout season 

Cortez, McCaskill hoping to lead CLU to victory 


Sports Editor 

It's basketball season again, and the 
CLU women's team is primed and ready 
for a super season. 

Although the Regals finished just 8-13 
overall last year, with a 4-8 record in the 
Southern California Intercollegiate Ath- 
letic Conference, they are looking for- 
ward to a breakout year with the return of 
several top players. 

Tim La Kose, a graduate of Cal-State 
Northridge in '9 1 , is in his second season 
as head coach at CLU. 
Sherry Ruter, a graduate of Chico State 
in '92, will be his assistant 

The strength of this year's team lies 
within the return of many experienced 

Last season, after transferring in from 
Moorpark Junior College, she set CLU 
records for assists in a season (161) and 
assists in a game (twice when she dished 
out 15). 

Alongside Cortez is junior shooting 
guard Nicole Albert 

Currently in her third year at CLU, 

Albert is well-known for her tough pres- 
sure defense and excellent shooting. 

Last season, she averaged 1S.1 points 
per game and led the team in free throw 
percentage (.833 percent). 

She also scored 29 points in a 124-9 
slaughter of Pacific Christian on Nov. 
30. 1993. 

Perhaps one of the top threats in SCI AC 
this year is center Kelli McCaskill. 

The senior from Canoga Park led the 
team in scoring (15.7 ppg) and rebound- 
ing (9.9 rpg). 

She was a Second Team All-SCIAC 
selection who will be a major force inside 
the paint this season. 

The most potent outside shooter on the 
team is Melissa Wood. 

Although she got a late start on the 
season last year, Wood still pumped in 44 

The Regals open up their 25-game 
schedule on Nov. 19 at home against 
Simpson College. 

In early December, the team will also 
be taking a road trip to the Bay Area. 
They will face Mills College in Oakland 
on Friday, Dec. 2 and San Francisco 
State on Saturday, Dec. 3. 

Regals Volleyball beat Occidental 
but come up short against UCSD 

They finish their season with a 20-9 record 


News Editor 

The Regals dream season came to a halt 
last Saturday night against UCSD in San 

The game followed CLU's thrilling win 
over Occidental the night before. 

That win allowed the women the oppor- 
tunity to play in the NCAA Division III 
West Regional women's volleyball final 
against UCSD. 

Despite a great effort, the Regals were 
defeated (15-6), (11-15), (15-10), (15-5). 
The loss ended the Regals season leaving 
them with a great 20-9 overall record with 
a 11-1 league record. 

"We had a great season, it is to bad it had 
to end on a loss," said freshman Jamey 
Regals to the championship match. 

Their successful season can be attributed 
to Park, the surprise freshmen, and the 
well-polished games of the returners. 

This was actually a season of learning for 
many of the players. 

The freshman had to adjust to college 
volleyball, and the returners had to adjust 

to being the leaders of the team. This mix 
must have been the right recipe as the team 
blended to produce the most dominating 
and feared team in SCIAC. This group 
should only grow more lethal and danger- 
ous next season as they improve their skills. 
"The success we had this year will help 
us next year. It was a great learning expe- 
rience," Light added. 

Improving on this years 11-1 league 
record will be a tough task for the Regals, 
but they have a great opportunity next year 
to dethrone women's volleyball power 

UCSD is a regular in the volleyball cham- 
pionships. So they have the type of pro- 
gram that CLU is trying to build. 

Not only do the Regals have a great 
chance of doing well in the playoffs, but 
they also can win their second consecutive 
sented on the all-SCIAC teams as they had 
a number of players that helped the Regals 
dominate their league opponents. 

Many fans will find it interesting to see if 
CLU can live up to the lofty expectations 
for next season. That kind of pressure is 
something they did not have to deal with 
this year.

Dr. James Fonseca the CLU 1994 Homecoming Grand Marshall tips his hat before the parade 

Retired CLU professor dies of heart failure 

Dr. James Fonseca contributed much in his 29 years of teaching Spanish 


Managing Editor 

Members of the CLU community were 
deeply saddened recently by the death of 
Dr. James Fonseca, long-time professor 
and friend of the university. 

Fonseca, who retired last May after 29 
years of teaching Spanish to CLU stu- 
dents, died on Dec. 16 of heart failure. 

"He was a very nice man, and he played 
an active role on our campus," said 
Kristen Bengston, junior, of the former 
CLU professor. 

Fonseca was often seen at various CLU 
events, ranging from choir shows and 
drama productions to speakers and cul- 
tural events. 

According to Dr. Walter Stewart, pro- 

fessor of foreign language, Fonseca still 
attended faculty meetings after his retire- 

"He was involved in everything on cam- 
pus. Even after he retired he took part in 
everything," said Stewart 

In 1966, Fonseca founded the Gamma 
Sigma, CLU 's chapter of Alpha Mu Gamma, 
a foreign language honor society. 

He also has spent time working with Es- 
peranto, an international language. Fonseca 
served as president of the America Associa- 
tion of Teachers of Esperanto. 
The former CLU professor's achei vements 
went beyond his involvement at CLU. 
Fonseca was a Phi Beat Kappa scholar with 
a Ph.D. in Spanish from UCLA, which he 
earned in 1957. He studied romance lan- 
guages and literature. 

He also received his California Teach- 
ing Credential there. 

Besides his commitment to CLU, 
Fonseca spent time with the Los Ange- 
les Unit for Recording for the Blind. 

Most recently Fonseca served as 
Grand Marshal in the CLU Homecom- 
ing Parade this past fall. 

"I felt that there was a real strong 
tradition in having him as a professor," 
said Laurie Segal, junior, whose high 
school Spanish teacher was taught by 
Fonseca while attending CLU just as 
she was. 

"I think it was very sad to see some- 
one who was very much a legacy of the 
school to pass away," said Segal, echo- 
ing the thoughts of many CLU faculty, 
staff and students. 

Gingrich speech 
stirs up mixed 
reactions on campus 
over federal funds 

for public radio 

•CLU's Republican and 
Democratic clubs share 
different views on issue 

Staff Writer 

CLU's Republicans and Democrats Clubs 
are split in their opinions this week with 
regard to Newt Gingrich's (R - Ga.) speech 
on the appropriation of federal funds to the 
nation's Corporation of Public Broadcast 

The National Public Radio (NPR), which 
KCLU is a part of, is also directly affected 
by possible consequences of decisions made 
by the Budget Committee. 

"I think that, by logic, we (the Republi- 
cans Club) will be very supportive of 

Gingrich," Dr. Herbert Gooch, advisor of 
the Republicans Club, said. 

Speaker Gingrich has proposed to dis- 
continue federal subsidy (of an annual $285 
million) for the CPB in his Balanced-Bud- 
get Plan. The corporation distributes those 
federal dollars to more than 1,000 stations 
and groups, including the Public Broad- 
casting Service (PBS) and NPR. 

"We would like to see, first of all, a 
smaller budget ... and this would be a way of 
helping to enable cutting the budget defi

Sober Rides runs 
into problems 

Founder seeks alternatives 


Staff Writer 

The CLU Sober Ride program was just 
getting off of the ground when, for insur- 
ance liability reasons, it was brought to a 
stand still. 

The program ran for two weekends be- 
fore Ian Sinks, the founder of CLU Sober 
Rides, was informed the university could 
not afford to pay for the liability insurance 
that comes with running the program. 

"The problem is everyone is so sue happy 
these days you can't do anything nice for 
someone" without the possibility of a law 
suit. Sinks said. 

One of the major problems is that the 
Sober Ride drivers are not permitted to use 
the school's vehicles because of the insur- 
ance problem. They must rely on students 
to donate the use of their cars when needed. 

This leads to the next problem. 'There is 
a lack of students willing to donate their 
cars," Sinks said. 

There have been many different ideas 
suggested to get around these problems 

First, it has been brought up that students 
could sign waivers that will free the school 
of any responsibility if something happens 
while students are in the school vans. This 
was denied by the insurance company. 

"Even if the students were to sign waivers 
they (the insurance company) won't deal 
with it," Sinks said. 

A second idea was if Sinks could get a car 
donated to the program. That cannot be 
done either because the car would have to 
be donated to the program through the 
school. This comes back to the corporation 
problem. "It is one vicious circle," Sinks 

Even though the program is on hold for 
now, it has not been scratched. Sinks has 
contacted MADD, SADD, the T.O. Sober 
Rides program, and others with the hopes 
of getting information and help from them. 
So far he has had little response from any of 

The CLU Sober Rides was created to help 
save lives. If anyone is interested in donat- 
ing their car or helping with the program 
please contact Ian Sinks at 493-3289.

Measles Outbreak 

There has been widespread measles outbreak in Ventura 
County. Beverly Kemmerling of Health Services urges 
everyone who has not had a measles vaccine since 1980 to 
get vaccinated. If you are exposed to the measles, it takes 
ten days to develop symptoms that include fever, cough, 
runny nose and red, watery eyes. These occur three to 
seven days before a red, blotchy rash appears on the body. 
Serious cases can lead to pneumonia, dehydration, 
encephalitis and other respiratory ailments. If left untreated 
this could be fatal. To see if you are up to date on your 
vaccinations or to get vaccinated call health services at 
ext. 3225. There is a $4 charge for the shot.

ADEP students help give relief to Rwandans 


Contributing Writer 

ADEP students help bring supplies to Rwandan 
refugees stranded in the three enclaves just outside the 
border of Uganda. Marie and Chris Smith have found a 
focus for their faith, their energy and every minute of 

their spare time by becoming the 

base camp support team for 
Ugandan relief missions.

and water purification supplies, 

food supplements and vaccines 
to camps of Rwandan refugees 

The Smiths have spent hundreds of hours seeking 
funding for the two trips made by Dr. Schaffner in 1994 
and this coming February. "Dr. Schaffner pays for his 
personal transportation. It's money for syringes, antibi- 
otics, vaccines and o<.er supplies that is so desperately 
needed," explains Marie Smith. "Our work is critical, 
without it there would be no mission and between now 

and the February trip we will triple our efforts." Their 
efforts have met with frustration. 

After staying up all night bagging up enough powdered 
protein drink for 1500 people, they learned that the 
shipment did not make it to Uganda. "It was stopped 
somewhere along the way," explained Marie Smith with 
Schaffner opened one of the first medical clinics in the 
, Conejo Valley in 1959 and has 

provided medical care to local resi- 
dents ever since. He first learned 
of the refugee's situation from 
Musisi, who is from Uganda. 
Undaunted by the need to wear a 
bullet proof vest to protect against 
snipers' bullets, Schaffner has 
plans for as a new clinic, and train- 
ing of Ugandan physicians assis- 


"Cholera and AIDS are rampant among the (Rwandan) 
refugees. They have almost no clean drinking water, and 
no protection against the cold," said Chris Smith. "We are 
also collecting blankets that can be used by as many as 
2,000 people. Another key element of this trip is educa- 
tion. The people here do not understand how AIDS is 
spread. There is a tremendous amount ot be done." 

Program offers chance for adults 
to take CLU classes at night 

Contributing writer 

In 1985 about 40 workinn adults were enrolled in . 
evening classses under the traditional program at CLU. 
Classes were limited and often filled by daytime stu- 
dents. Recognizing the difficulty these adult students 
were experiencing, then Dean for Academic Affairs, 
David Schramm, asked Dr. Pam Jolicoeur and Mike 
Doyle to take a look at what might be done to make their 
academic life easier. Studies were done of other schools 
offering programs for working adults and a recommen- 
dation was submitted in favor of the accelerated format 
of the ADEP- Adult Degree Programing. 

Adjustments in record keeping had to be made to 
accomodate the 1 1-week term and faculty and classroom 
space had to be located. At the same time, plans were in 
place to move the library from its old location (now the

Business Administration, but in the Spring of 1986 the 
first three ADEP graduates accepted their diplomas. 

ADEP students make up just approximately one quar- 
ter of CLU's undergraduate population. 

Qualifications for ADEP students require that they be 
at least 25 years old and have substantial work experi- 
ence. This is key to the integration of work and academic 
experience which is an important part of ADEP. Design- 
ers of the Adult Degree Program sought to provide high- 
quality, on-campus academic experience which was 
analogous to the traditional undergraduate experience. 

Learning objectives set by CLU are the same for both 
ADEP and the traditional daytime students. 

ADEP is now a model program for other Universi-

Debbie Sigman, president of the Demo-

She said that cutting the federal sub-

"They're both important," Sigman said.

to do so, we'll fall so far behind (in the

it'll be impossible for us to catch up," she 


Sigman, a freshman majoring in Inter-

other programs in the country the Budget 
Committee can look into other than that of 
public education. 

"I feel that we need to keep funding up

Judge Lance Ito was 
a student of CLU 
assistant professor 
of political science 

Now famous judge was once 
taught by Dr. Herbert Gooch 


Staff Writer 

Dr. Herbert Gooch said his former 
student Judge Lance Ito was a person 
who made his views known. 

Gooch, an assistant professor of po- 
litical science at CLU, was a teaching 
assistant in Ito's freshman U.S. history 
class at UCLA. 

"You quickly had an idea where he 
stood," Gooch said. 
Ito, a Superior Court Judge since 1989, 
is currently presiding over the OJ. 
Simpson trial. This is the second high- 
profile trial he has presided over since he 
won trial judge of the year for his work 
in the Charles Keating, savings and loan 
scandal trial. 

According to Gooch, "The D. A. picked 
Ito not only because he is a good judge, 
but also to counteract charges of racism 
because of his minority status." 

Some of the impressions he formed of 
Ito were that he was good at research, 
aggressive, and he was a pretty nice guy. 
"He had very strong opinions, but he 
was able to turn it around and joke about 
it," Gooch said. 

He recalled that Ito's classroom de- 
meanor was "very much like he is in 
court." Overall, Gooch found him to be 
a "very ambitious kid and a straight A

CLU Debate continues success 
at Point Loma Novice/Rookie 
tournament in San Diego 

Toay Foster and Chantel Shelton win rookie tournament 

The CLU Debate flourished at San 
Diego, placing first and third at the 
Point Loma Novice/Rookie tourna- 
ment The PL Loma tournament is de- 
signed to give students from argumen- 
tation classes the opportunity to com- 
pete against each other. 
Toay Foster and Chantel Shelton went 
undefeated in winning the tournament 
in the rookie division. Foster and 
Shelton defeated California State Uni- 
versity, Bakersfield in the final round. 
Each was estatic. 

"Mark said that we would have a 
great chance to win the tournament," 
said Foster, who is no stranger to the 
public eye. Foster is the 1992 Miss 
California Pageant winner. Shelton said 
that she had help from all comers. 
Shirley Docusian and Kristopher 
George, CLU's top debate team, were 
instrumental in their victory. 

"Shirley and Kris were invaluable," 
said Shelton. "They treated us like 
Kingspersons, when we needed help 
they were there." 

Adam Abrahmsand Matt Powell, who 
placed third, were disappointedmat they 
lost a round, they finished 3-1 . Abrahms, 
a familiar advocate on campus, said 
"we were all pleased with our perfor- 
mance, but we felt as though we could 
have won it all." 

Celena Alcala and Maqueda Hooks, 
and Michelle Echecarria and Katrine 
Helgesen teamed up and each had a 2- 
2 record. They were equally impressed 
that all their hard work during the se- 
mester paid off. "I was surprised that we 
would be competitive with other 
schools, but Mark did say that if we 
worked hard we would do well and we 
did," said Echecarria.

CLU identification cards 
offer students advantages 
and disadvantages 

There are several advantages and disadvantages to 
having a campus identification card. For students who 
live on campus, the campus identification is security but 
a necessity and for commuter students and faculty it's 
a decrease in dollar amounts spent in the cafeteria and 
"Marriott" locations. 

According to Jena Lougee, director of Campus Din- 
ing, students who live on campus must be on a meal 
plan, therefore, the only way the cafeteria can keep 
track is by issuing them a student (campus) identifica- 

Being on a meal plan is good for student's first time 
away from home because they don't have to worry 
about where their next meal is coming from and neither 
do their parents. 

Another advantage is that without the identification, 
you can't gain access inside the dorms after business 
hours; and this leads to an increase in security for 
students living on campus. 

Student (campus) identifications are also important 
for identifying students in cases of emergencies. 

Commuter students and faculty are given the oppor- 
tunity to purchase "Munch Money," a credit card to 
purchase food in any of the "Marriott" dining locations 
on campus that includes the cafeteria. 

Students and faculty can purchase a minimum of $20 
in food on the card accompanied with a student (cam- 
pus) identification, during the locations' business hours. 

The maximum amount of the "Munch Money" card is 
$500 or more depending on the person's needs. Stu- 
dents and faculty save by purchasing the "Munch 
Money" card because the cost is less than the meal plan 
and regular "Marriott" prices if meals are not purchased 

There aren't any hassles while at the cash register 
because you just show the card and don't have to count 
money; this cuts back on slow lines. 

Student (campus) identifications are free of charge; 
and freebies makes life convenient 

The disadvantage of the student (campus) identifica- 
tion is that when students lose their identification, 
they're charged $30 to have another identification pro- 

Another disadvantage is not issuing commuter stu- 
dents identification when they're first entry students on 

Even if the students commute, they should be given 
an identification when admitted in case there's an 

With identification they can be found through the 
college if they're relatives can't be located from a

New semester brings variety of feelings 

Student looks at times to come with favor 


Contributing Writer 

A new semester is upon us, and with it comes a lot of 
anticipation and optimism, but also a variety of worries 
and headaches. 

For some, the fresh session is a blessing. It affords you 
a chance to clean the slate, to get your parents off your 
back, and it even allows you to make those previous 
classes a distant memory, even though the blotch on your 
permanent records might not disappear as quickly. 

At least your new professors don[t have a clue about 
what previously took place, and, if you're smart, they can 
be easily fooled. At least until that first paper comes in. 

The classes are different, but whether the vigor and new 
and improved attitude can stay intact remains to be seen. 
You know the first day of class when you are sitting there 
and promising yourself that this is the semester to buckle 
down and get a head start. Unfortunately, that is usually 
when you are scanning the syllabus, and that enthusiasm 
dies 30 minutes into the first lecture. 

While that in-class attitude might be fading, at least it 
seems as if you see a new face on campus every day. 

Whether they are unsuspecting transfers, returnees back 
from international study abroad, or that gal whose sched- 
ule was completely opposite of yours last semester, there 
is definitely something to be said for a fresh face. 

I'm still even seeing people from last year that were here 
last semester. 

And your name is.... 

While for others, the semester is not necessarily about 
classes and people. Instead, seniors are shaping and mold- 
ing a future. 

There is no looking at the schedule for next fall's class 
and the jockeying — and some might say backstabbing — 
for next year's suite and roommates. 

What is happening are trips to the career center, filling 
out graduate school papers, appointments, interviews and 
a case of the nerves. 

For us, this semester is about squeezing out every last 
enjoyment and heartache of our college lives. It is about 
making difficult decisions, having fun, and developing, 
nurturing and maintaining life-long friendships. 

So, whatever situation you find yourself in, one thing is 
constant: everyone is here right now. Make sure you make

Life's ever speedy 
pace leaves no time 
for keeping up 


Staff Writer 

As I write this, I'm trying to catch my breath. I've 
just run over from across campus so that I could make 
the Echo's deadline. 

This phenomena of the ever quickening pace of life 
makes me feel like I'm in constant training for the 
eternal Marathon sponsored by The Human Experi- 
ence. With every birthday that I celebrate, I seem to 
have less time to enjoy tnem, or to grow into the future. 

I realize this may seem like a naive view and I should 
just accept this terminal fast foreward as my right of 
passage into tribe earth, but frankly, I'm beginning to 
feel jipped. What's the point of getting 400 college 
degrees so that I can receive an entry-level position, so 
that I can be promoted, so I can make a lot of money to 
pay off my inexorbinant house bill, only to get an ulcer 
at the Christmas bonus that didn'tcome through, all so 
that I can retire when I'm 65 and hope my kids don't 
put me in a home. 

OK, maybe I' ve gone off the deep end of college 
student pessemism, but the Indy car that I happen to be 
traveling through the days in has made me a little 
motion sick. Even the birds seem to be singing at an 
exagerated speed, like the Chipmunks Christmas Al- 

Im trying to take a very Zen outlook on life, to exist 
in the moment and make the very most out of every 
situation. This becomes a problem when events and 
people overlap in a collage of temporal anarchy. 

I know that I'm not the only one dealing with a world 
pushing light speed. I've noticed that people I've 
grown up with don't comb their hair as often as they 
once did and wrinkled clothes seem to be the staple of 
a generation that has to decide between ironing and 
eating dinner. 

The other day, a teacher was discussing relaxation. 
She brought up finding a happy place and imagining 
that environment when things get too stressful, a place 
in which you can say "I'm OK, you're OK" to all of the 

conflicts which plague you. 

I think I'll pull through this flux in the rapidity of life. 
It's just a question of remembering who I am even 
when there are forces that work to rob me of that 
knowledge. The trick is to not be so caught up in the 
snowball of existence that you don't leave time for 

Oh, and if this somewhat less than profound philoso- 
phy doesn't work, you can find me on a secluded 
Hawaiian island, soaking in the sunshine, and awaiting 
the perfect wave. That sounds like a pretty happy place

KCLU-FM general manager speaks out 
against possible GOP legislative squeeze 


General Manager, KCLU-FM 

It is time to find out if you believe in the need for 
commercial free public broadcasting and programming 
sources like National Public Radio 
and KCLU at Cal Lutheran. 

Public broadcasting is under attack 
and in the next 80 days public broad- 
casting as you know it may be gone 

KCLU wants to serve Ventura 
County for many years to come, but 
we need your help now. 

As our congressional leaders work in the 104th Con- 
gress, they are proposing steep cuts in federal funding for 
the Corporation for Public Broadcasting for both televi- 
sion and radio. 

The CPB is the agency that provides to public statons 
like KCLU and TV stations that create shows like "Sesame 

Eleminating CPB funding from KCLU without provid- 
ing alternative funding sources will have an immediate 
impact on programming from National Public Radio, and 
could affect KCLU's ability to operate. 
Public radio programs and services are widely acces- 
sible-there are no economic or social 
barriers to listener participation. 

The cost of public broadcasting to 
the average American taxpayer in the 
fiscal year 1993 amounted to about 29 
cents a year for public radio. 

Are National Public Radio, KCLU 
and "Sesame Street" worth it? Tell 
your congressional representatives, yes. 

Your immediate action is needed. Call or write your 
congressional representatives with your comments on the 
critical issue of federal funng for public b roadcasu ng.

representatives call Ext. 9200, KCLU on campus and in 
the community.

Best of both worlds 

Surfer and businessman 


Features Editor 

"Big Wave" Dave. It's a name everyone 
on campus knows, even if everyone doesn't 
know the man behind the name. If you've 
heard the name, you think surfing, and 
that's "Big Wave." If you know the man, 
you know it's more than that. 

Dave Donaldson, 24, was raised in 
Ventura, close enough to the beach that he 
spent most of his life there. As might be 
suspected, he has been surfing for almost 
as long. Some would argue that he knew 
how to surf before he knew how to walk. 
Donaldson says he can't remember. 
"Surfing to me is like the olive in my 
martini glass. It has to be there." 

With thoughts like those, Donaldson 
knew he could never give up surfing, but 
also knew he needed money. In order to do 
both, he found a job that connected income 
and his pastime. 

With a couple designs and a loan, he 
made some T-shirts and began to sell them. 
Friends and family were his main custom- 
ers, but he took the money he made from 
them and made more shirts and added some 

Eventually, he started getting orders from 
stores for his clothes. He took out another 
loan, made as many shirts, shorts and surf- 
ing trunks as he could, and Traditional 
Longboard Wear was born. 

It's now ready to move on however. 
With a trendy line of clothes, the company 
is expanding beyond what Donaldson says 
he can do with it alone, so he's selling it 

"It's hot. I have to sell it 'cause I don't 
have the capital to keep it I'm just trying 
to take advantage of the trend," Donaldson 

Selling his company does not put him out 
of business however. Appraised at 
$250,000, Donaldson isn't sure if he will 
sell 100 percent of the stock, or stay with

Working as either a sales representative 
or a marketing consultant for companies 
such as Chums sunglass holders, Hang Ten

says he enjoys his other line of work. 

"You work on commission. You make 
your own hours. You get as much money 
out of it as lime you put in," he says. 

And Donaldson definitely puts the hours 
in. A quick glance at his schedule and it 
becomes obvious how busy he is. 

Up at 8 a.m. to go surfing, he spends most 
of his day visiting and calling stores to see 
if they need anything. With his own office 
in Ventura, stores as far up as Santa Bar- 
bara to supply, and clothing shows around 
the country, he spends a lot of time travel-

ricular activities. "There's no time," he 
says. "I'm too busy studying and work-

So with a degree and unlimited practical 
experience under his belt, Donaldson heads 
off into the sunset come graduation time. 
As for what he plans on doing after he 
leaves CLU, Donaldson isn't exactly sure, 
but has a pretty good idea. 

"I'll probably continue with the sales rep 
thing. I've had a few solid job offers, but I 
don't need those yet," he says. 

His real plans however, are a little more 
romantic. "I just want to work till I'm 30or 
35, make a lot of money, and then move to 
Tabaraua, this little island off the Fijis, 
where I can sleep and surf all day."

Focusing on the new administrative sys- 
tem through technology will be Lucy 
Rodriguez' goal for the registrar this year. 
After seven years as registrar at Cal Poly, 
San Luis Obispo, Rodriguez, the new 
registrar at CLU, voyaged down south 
and found there were more challenging 

'Transferring from a big university to a 
small private institution is a great change 
of setting," Rodriguez said. Unlike a big 
university, there is a sense of community 
and congeniality, she added. 'The stu- 
dents' and faculty's colaborative effort 
and willingness to tackle a problem is 
what makes CLU a great place," 
Rodriguez said. 

Focusing on making the sudents' aca- 
demic career through registration a little 
easier and more efficient is Rodriguez' 
priority. "One of the biggest problems we 
find students have is the lack of informa- 
tion for processes and procedures," she 

Knowing deadlines for adding and drop- 
ping a class, core requirements and aca- 
demic policies, to name a few, are some 
of the situations the registrar is faced 

with, Rodriguez said. "Knowledge is 
power," she added. 

Suggestions for students include reading 
the semester class schedule and the student 
handbook, she said. "I'm looking into cre- 
ating an academic handbook with just aca- 
demic policies, processes and procedures," 
Rodriguez said. 

Another possibility Rodriguez is looking 
into is the use of technology through 
CLUnet, which would include the student's 
degree progress and other useful resources 
for students. "But that's way down the 
road," she said. 

One of Rodriguez' goals is to make use of 
the new administrative system currently in 
progress. This system will help service 
CLU more efficiently, Rodriguez said. The 
system will provide more access across 
campus and people will not need to be 
dependent just on this office, she added. 

"This will take some time. Next fall, 
some of registration will be on the old 
system and some on the new, " Rodriguez 

Too soon to say specifically, Rodriguez 
is putting togethernew ideas and new goals 
for the registrar's office through the con- 
version process focusing on making regis- 
tration just a little easier for students and 
faculty. Maybe telephone registration?

Bible study gives early 
risers a chance to meet 


Calender Editor 

You might think that 6:30 A.M in the morning is 
early, but some CLU students might disagree with 

The early moming Bible study group evolved from 
some students wishing to begin their mornings with 
"It's nice because there really isn't anything like this 
on campus," senior Sam Yates said. 

Senior Scott Bean describes the bible study as "a 
chance for students to come share their ideas and 
devotions. There are no Theologians to tell you what 
the bible is saying." 

'The bible study is held early so that is convenient 
for everybody. It usually lasts until 7:15 A.M." fresh- 
man Taryn Harmon said. 

"It's really not that bad once you get used to it," 
Hannon said, adding that "it's good for fellowship." 

"(The early morning Bible Study) was a nice way to 
start out the day. I enjoyed starting the day with God 
because it gave me inspiration to last throughout the 
day," Sophomore Christy Gustafson said. 

If the early morning's don't work out for you, 
Rejoice is held every Thursday at 9 p.m. in the Chapel 
lounge. "We sing praise songs have a short devotional 
and prayer," Bean said, adding that "singing talent is

Club Caf big with CLU students 

'A well known location on campus turns into something unfamiliar' 


Staff Writer 

Dancing is fun, relaxing, and a great 
form of exercise, and now it's available to 
CLU students on campus every other Fri- 
day night at Club Caf. 

Club Caf is put on by the R.H.A. (Resi- 
dence Hall Association) and was created 
by Sierra Brown, who is also the presjdent 
of the association. 

'The idea is to take a well known loca- 
tion on campus and turn it into something 
unfamiliar," said Brown. "Basically we 
tried to mold it after'The Need' idea." 

R.H.A. is divided into different councils. 
There is the executive council, one for 
New West, Old Westandone for theGhetto 
(Ml Clef, Thompson, and Pederson). 

The responsibility for putting the night 
on will rotate between each of these four 
councils. "By having this opportunity they 
will be able to create the setting, decide on 
the type of music, if there will be a dress 
code and so on," said Brown. 

In order to put the night on, each hall is 
given $100 from R.H.A. If the council 
decides on selling refreshments or having a 
raffle then that council is able to keep that 

The first Club Caf night was put on by the 
executive council and it received a "good 
response" said Brown, "about 1 25 students 
showed up." 

The executive council gave their night a 
theme which was "welcome back," As a 
part of their motif they decided on a dress 
code which was: no short shorts, no san- 
dals, no ripped jeans, no weapons and men 
needed to wear collars. 

"We decided on this dress code to make 
people think that they're not just going to 
the Caf but actually going out and doing 
something," said Brown. 

"It's a good alternative to going outdanc- 
ing and drinking and then driving home," 
said Brown. "We know people are going 10 
drink so our intent is not only to provide a 
non alcoholic alternative but to keep them 
from drinking and driving." 

Colorful fiesta to take place at CLU 

Quetzalli has received standing ovations from Cuba to Hawaii 

Multicultural Services and programs and MEXICAYOTL, Society for the Arts and 
Humanities a non-profit community have joined to present el Ballet Folklorico Quetzalli

Beautiful costumes add to the pageantry and intensity of the rhythmic performance. 
They are accompanied by the musical group " Tien Huicani.," tremendous artists in their 
own right and vituosos on the harpa jarocha, or folk harp of Veracruz. The music is a 
vital part of the program and provides the show with some of its most memorable 
moments. With standing ovations from Cuba to Hawaii, "Quetzalli is fast becoming one 
of Mexico's most popular products.

Ronny Romm's hypnosis and 
E.S.P amazes CLU Students 

Hypnotist's skills and humor held the crowd's attention for over two hours 


Staff Writer 

Ronny Romm mystified a crowd ofCLU 
stu dents on Thursday, Jan. 26 at 8 p.m. in 
the gym. 

One of this country's most sought after 
entertainers, 34 -year-old Romm delivered 
an E.S.P. and hypnosis show that involved 
total audience participation. 
As well as performing at colleges, Romm 
performs at conventions, cruises, clubs, 
and resorts. 

Romm 's interesting skills and humor held 
the crowd's attention for over two hours. 
He began the show by demonstrating his 
skills in E.S.P.(Extra Sensory Perception). 
While blindfolded, Romm guessed ran- 
dom names and numbers that were written 
down on pieces of paper by audience mem- 
bers. To the amazement of the crowd, 
Romm was extremely accurate in reveal- 
ing these. 

Rom m picked senior Chris Fowler' s piece 
of paper, and correctly guessed his name 
and birthdate. When asked how he felt 
about the show, Fowler replied, "I was 
intellectually amazed and confused, yet 

intrigued all at one time." 

Romm showed the crowd that the power 
of suggestion is very effective. He dem- 
onstrated hypnosis during the second half 
of the show. 

Many students ran up to the stage, ea- 
gerly waiting to be hypnotized, but not all 
of the students actually felt the effects of 

Romm started with little demonstrations 
such as having the students believe that 
they were fishing, and that they were 
extremely hot, then cold. 

For the grand finale, Romm had the 
hypnotized students believing that they 
were such characters as a ballerina, a 
martian, and a rock star. 

Rico Gross was one of the students who 
volunteered to be a subject of hypnosis. 
Gross was told to become an army drill 
sergeant when he heard the audience whis- 
tling a certain song. He went out into the 
crowd, yelling and grabbing students 
which he was to recruit. 

Gross felt that the whole experience was 
"pretty cool." In response to how he felt 
about the way he acted during his hyp- 
notic state, Gross said, "I was kind of

Temblor hits 
Carraway in 
Japan on 


Special to The Echo 

OSAKA, Japan-On Jan. 17, the first anniversary of 
the 6.7 Northridge earthquake, I found myself once 
again lying in bed listening to and feeling the rumblings 
of another major earthquake. 

This time, however, I wasn't in Rasmussen residence 
hall on the CLU campus, but half way around the world 
in Sakai City, Osaka Prefecture, Japan. 

After what seemed to be an eternity just like the 
Northridge quake, I leaped out of my futon, grabbed a 
sweatshirt and ran to the door to escape any possible 
fire caused by a broken natural gas line. 

Well, I can thank God I was so lucky. There was no 
fire, broken dishes or fallen pictures, only a toppled 
over can of shaving cream. 

However, more than 4,000 residents of Kobe and 
Niehinomiya cities, approximately 35 miles across 
Osaka Bay from Sakai, weren't as lucky. 

Many died as their homes collapsed upon them during 
the initial earthquake, which registered 7.2 on the 
Richter scale. While others were apparently trapped in 
their homes as firestorms swept through their neighbor- 
hoods, and even more, who were trapped for many 
hours died because of injuries sustained in the initial 

I never had any reservations about coming to Japan, 
even though it is well-known for its earthquakes. I was 
coming to Kansai, the Kobe-Osaka-Kyoto region that 
isn't known for major earthquakes. 

The lack of earthquakes in Kansai has led to an 
apparent lack of preparation, and in turn, mis lack of 
preparation has led to extreme criticism of the Japanese 
government by the Japanese people. 

Much of this criticism stems from governmental 
agencies' slow response to provide fire fighting and 
rescue operations and relief supplies including food and 

Tauneji Rikitake, a director of the Association for the 
Development of Earthquake Prediction and professor 
emeritus of Tokyo University, was quoted in the 
Mainichi Daily newspaper saying that "the damage 
seems to have been greater in Kansai because since they 
haven't experienced earthquakes, they weren't able to 
deal with putting out fires." 

The fact became perfectly clear when fire fighting 
battalions from other cities were called in to help, 
including some from Nagoya, which is more than 200 
miles from Kobe. 

Recovery for qualke victims difficult 

Rescue operations have also come under criticism. 

The worst story I have heard of so far is that more 
than 100 people flooded the Nishinomiya Police Station 
to seek help. Apparently, they were turned away and 
told that they should cooperate with each other to rescue 
trapped victims. 

The Ground Self-Defense Forces, the equivalent of 
the American National Guard, has been severely 

"What is the purpose of the SDF since it isn't allowed 
to fight in wars (according to Japanese law)?" some 
have begun asking. 

It wasn't until four hours after the earthquake that the 
SDF was mobilized to help in the rescue efforts for 
trapped victim. Apparently, the various SDF bases

throughout Kansai and Japan were waiting for orders on 
how to proceed. 

The lack of relief supplies, namely food and water, 
have been blamed partly on obstructed roads, but more 
so on the lack of preparation . 

At Uegahara Elementary School, an evacuation center 
in Nishinomiya, only 100 onigiris, a rice ball wrapped 
in seaweed that is the Japanese equivalent to a sand- 
wich, were provided for more than 1,000 evacuees 
Tuesday night (Jan. 18, Japanese time). 

Yoshio Oka, who fled to the school with his family, 
was quoted as saying, "The city has failed to lake any 
measures. If we continue to expect the city authorities to 
do something for us, we'll starve." 

Personally, I was shocked and stunned at the death 
tool and destruction. Watching TV and listening to 
radio announcers reading the names of the dead for 
more than 45 minutes straight is an unbelievable and 
frightening experience. 

One foreign reporter for the Mainichi Daily called the 
announcers, "Grim Reapers with superb diction." 

However, considering the lack of preparation, slow 
response and the way that Japanese neighborhoods are 
constructed, I'm not completely surprised at the death 
toll and destruction. 

If you have ever walked through a typical Japanese 
neighborhood, you would know what I mean. 

Most Japanese homes, old and new, have thick 
ceramic tile roofs that tend to make them top heavy. 
Also, three to 10 homes may occupy the same area that 
one typical American home does because they are 
smaller and they do not have yards for the most part. 

The door of my apartment is literally six feed away 
from the next house. My bedroom window is less than 
1 1/2 feet from another. 

In addition, Japan is so dependent on natural gas for 
cooking and hot water that gas lines crisscross every 
city and neighborhood. 

Also, portable kerosene, gas and electric heaters are 
heavily relied on to provide warmth during the winter. 
These heaters can easily tip over during a major 
earthquake like Tuesday's, and start fires. 

What surprises and annoys me the most is the attitude 
government officials have in regard to elevated free- 
ways and the Shikansen, Japan's Bullet Train. 

They were considered "bastions of safety during an 

Before Tuesday's earthquake, Construction Ministry 
officials have always asserted that Japan's elevated 
freeways would be able to withstand an earthquake 
comparable to the Great Kan to Earthquake of 1923 that 
devastated the Tokyo region. 

The Great Kanto Earthquake, which is estimated to 
have registered 7.9, killed more than 140,000 people. 

In the past, ministry officials have been sent to foreign 
countries to survey the damage freeways sustained from 
earthquakes. Yet they have always returned to Japan 
praising the safety and technology of Japanese high- 

Initially after Tuesday's earthquake, the Construction 
Ministry declared that it was not the design of the 
Hanshin Expressway that was at fault in the collapse 
and tip over, but the construction and land foundation. 

Well, the ministry, after surveying the damage, is 
swallowing its pride. It turned out the Hanshin was too 
top heavy. 

What's scary about the situation is that the Construc- 
tion Ministry still contends that the elevated freeways in 
the Tokyo area would be able to withstand an earth- 
quake similar to the Great Kanto Earthquake. 

From 1966, when the Hanshin Expressway was built, 
to 1991, the freeway had only five safety inspections. 
How often do the Tokyo elevated freeways have safety 

Furthermore, the Tokyo freeways are said to be shaky 
when you are driving on them-so much that you can 
feel it. 

Trains forced to stop because of quake 

Entering its 31st year of operation, the Shinkansen has 
a perfect safety record. There has never been a train 
derailment Yet, if Tuesday's earthquake had occurred 
after 6 a.m., when the trains were scheduled to be 
running, that record would have been destroyed. 

The tracks on which the Shinkansen ran were thought 
to be indestructible. Yet, several sections of the elevated 
track fell in the Kobe and Nishinomiya areas. Several 
ground-level sections of track were broken between 
Osaka and Kyoto. 

Had the Shinkansen, which runs at a speed of approxi- 
mately 140 mph through the Kobe area, been in 
operation during the earthquake, the results would have 
been disastrous. 

In the best scenario, the train would have been 
derailed. In the worst, the train would have jumped the 
tracks and the sound barrier walls would have fallen on 
the adjacent homes and buildings. 

A Shinkansen, moving at that speed, must still travel 
about two miles after its emergency brakes are engaged. 
One Shinkansen, with 16 cars, can carry up to 1,300 

The 7.2 earthquake has been the most shocking and 
frightening of the three quakes that I have experienced. 
It proved that no one is safe from the extreme power 
that lies under our feet. 

It also proved mat we must be prepared for that 
violent and dangerous power. 

There is no way for me to express my extreme 
sympathy and sadness to the people of Kobe, 
Nishinomiya and the other affected areas. My heart 
goes out to them and they are in my prayers.

Top theologian honored at chapel service 

Annual WinterBreak conference held at CLU 


Religion Editor 

Crowds of people filled Samuelson 
Chapel Wednesday to mark the beginning 
of the 14th annual WinterBreak Theologi- 
cal Conference. 

The highlight of the chapel service was 
the presentation of an honorary degree to 
Dr. Krister Stendahl, professor of divinity 
emeritus at Harvard University and former 
bishop of Stockholm, Sweden. 

"He is one of the greatest New Testament 
theologians of the 20th century. He's an 
absolute giant," said Dr. Jarvis Streeter, 
professor of religion and coordinator of the 

After receiving the honorary doctor of 
divinity degree, Stendahl gave his response 
in what he said was "the only genre I really 
feel comfortable with, the sermon." 

Stendahl spoke about the importance of 
interaction between faith and intellect in 

He said there seems to be a "built-in anti- 

intellectualism" in Christian worship. 
Stendahl said he believes Christians need 
to have both a strong mind and a strong 

It is the "mind that keeps 
the faith fresh," he said, and 
added, 'The faith keeps the 
mind hungry and never al-

rest of the service kicked off

theological conference held 
annually by the religion de-

of the conference is to pro- 
vide an opportunity for con-

and lay people of all denomi-

Lutheran church," he said.

Streeter said the conference is 

consistently run at a financial loss 

to CLU, but added, "That kind 

of hightens that

The theme of 
WinterBreak this 
year is "An Epis-

The topic is 
timely, because a 
vote will be taken

Full communion 
means that the two 
churches would be 
as close as pos- 
sible without merging. It would 
allow for such things as joint ordi- 

nation and interchangeability of ministers. 

"We try to pick themes for these confer- 
ences that are relevant to the church 
present," Streeter said. 

This year's featured lecturers were 
Stendahl, who is Lutheran, Dr. Alan Jones, 
dean of Grace Cathedral in San Francisco

Along with the lectures, panels made up 
of clergy and lay people were held. 

Brian Hiortdahl, a CLU alumnus serving 
as an intern pastor in New York attended 
the conference, and said he found the pan-

'There are some very very smart, thought- 
ful lay people out there, and their voices 
need to be heard as well," Hiortdahl said. 

He also praised Stendahl, saying, "Ev-

Raising the minimum wage and welfare 
benefits will help to bring a balance to 
rising prices for the impoverished, Dr. 
Pamela Brubaker said during the 
Winterbreak Theological Conference last 

S he added that the bonds 
of poverty and oppression 
must be lifted from people 
on welfare. 

"The well-being of 
many people, particularly 
vulnerable women and 
their children, is at stake 
in the debate on welfare 
reform," she said. 

Brubaker believes that 
the welfare debate is a 
struggleoverfamily struc- 
ture, the roles of women 
in the household, care-giv- 
ing, social citizenship and 
the state. 

"At the 1993 conference 

on welfare reform and 
women's lives, it was proposed to give 
caretaker allowances, which would be a 
social wage for a parent who chooses to 
work at home or to use to purchase child 
care," she said. 

Society must develop "a more adequate 
conception of a common good in which 
women and children matter, we must inter- 
rogate notions of economic value," 
Brubaker added. 

"Conservatives envision the common 
good as being served by a combination of 

the market, traditional families and pri- 
vate charity," she said, adding that "un- 
regulated market economies exacerbate 
poverty and economic injustice. Tradi- 
tional families are not guaranties against 
poverty, as many African- American, 
Latino and young white families live be- 
low the poverty line." 

In an interview after the lecture Brubaker 

Society must 
develop "a

ception of a 

Dr. Pamela Brubaker 

said it is "the work that women and men (if 
they do it) do in terms of caring for chil- 
dren, being there for children, providing 
food, shelter and clothing that's important 
and has value. 

She said that economic value needs to be 
given to the emotional and psychological 
labor that makes families possible. 

In the welfare debates, she said that fre- 
quently those in opposition to the welfare 
system say that welfare mothers do not 
work. "But they do," Brubaker said, add- 

ing that"the work they do in caring for their 
families is the same as having economic 
The problem to be solved, according to 

the speaker, "is not welfare but poverty. 
Other strategies are needed, strategies 
which adequately address the needs of care 
for children and women's economic vul- 

"To be poor in today's world is to lead a 
precarious life," Brubakersaid, adding that, 
"to be poor is to be unable to adequately 
provide the basic materials a human needs 
for subsistence, to have access to essential 
community services or to lead a full life: 
participation in social activities and cul- 
tural life." 

She stated that poor women and their 
children are a convenient scapegoat for the 
declining standard of living for many 

Grim statistics from Current Population 
Reports reveal that nearly one in four 
children live below the poverty line. The 
majority of female-householder families 
with children under six are poor; 60.5 per- 
cent of white, 71.8 percent of Hispanic and 
73.1 percent of black families. 

After her lecture Brubaker said that "as 
Christians we have a responsibility to be a 
part of efforts or help poor people live a 
better life, that it's a part of our Christian 

"Jesus' life and ministry as recorded in 
the gospels, (Luke 13 verses 10-17), were 
a loosening of the bonds of poverty and 
oppression," she said. 

Brubaker, quoting from Matthew 25 
verses 3 1 -46, said that "our relationship to 
the poor and our relationship to Jesus Christ 
are one in the same." 

tells value 
of peace 


Staff Writer 

Proclaiming that it was a time for 
shalom, Dr. Krister Stendahl told a 
Monday morning chapel audience that 
peace can only be achieved when 
people of all faiths stop working against 
each other, and start working together. 
"We are in this mess together: Jews, 
Christians and Muslims," he pro- 
claimed. "It is enormously important 
that we face the problem." 

He went on to say that the world is 
too engrossed in winning and losing 
and gaining adversaries. 

"Ultimately you become paranoid in 
a we/them world," he said. The ulti- 
mate goal we should have is "to find 
ways of thinking that aren ' t structured 
by the adversary system." 

Stendahl made sure to make refer-

The team is ranked 7th in the nation and 
2nd in the West.

Managing Editor 

While many CLU students were at home 
over the break relaxing or trying to earn 
some extra money for the upcoming se- 
mester, the Regal basketball team was 
busy improving upon their already per- 
fect record. 

With victories over teams like Simpson 
College and The Master's College, the 
Regal 's started their season off on a high 

"At the beggining of the season we 
started out with two goals: good attitude 
and a strong effort. I think that we have so 
far accomplished our goals," said sopho- 
more Karrie Matson, guard. 

Friday's game against Claremont- 
Mudd-Scripps proved to be a chance for 
the Regals to once again prove them- 
selves as a 17-0 team. 

The game was close from the beginning 
with the lead changing hands over 12 

Finally the Regals pulled into the lead 
and were playing full force by the second 

When asked about the way she felt her 
team played not only in Friday's game, 
but over the course of the season, Junior 
Carla Moore, Center, replied, "Our sea- 
son is going great and I hope it continues 
to go uphill." 

One thing has been obvious this season; 
the desire the Regals have to win and the 
love they have for the game. 

"I think the team has a lot of heart and 
the love for the game," said Senior Kelli 
McCaskill, Center. 

Not only has the team improved, but the 
support from the school has. The once 
small crowd now fills the stands. 

"I think we are doing really well. As 
long as we stay mentally sound, not let 
our wins go to our heads and play to the 
best potential that we can, we will go very 
far," said Matson.

CLU Baseball Prepares to Swing into Action 

Kingsmen looking to gain another SCIAC championship 

Sports Editor 

The Cal Lutheran baseball team will be 
counting on its offense and athletic ability 
this season in order to improve on its 31- 
9-1 record and SCIAC championship of 
last year. 

Their opening game will be Thursday at 
Cal Poly-San Luis Obispo. 

Head coach Marty Slimak says that this 
team "is much younger (than last year's 
team) but has more athletic ability." He 
believes that there are many question 
marks in the lineup this season because 
there are many new players at different 

One spot that is definitely not a question 

mark is first base, which is held by senior 
John Becker. Becker is coming off a tre- 
mendous season that saw him collect all- 
American honors. 

He finished the year with a .368 average, 
14 home runs, and 44 runs batted in. His 
.792 slugging percentage led the team. 

Senior outfielder Kirk Fellows will also 
be coming back after a solid year in which 
he hit .347 with 17 runs and only four 
strikeouts in 72 at bats. 

Fellows will be joined by another excel- 
lent outfielder in senior Jeff Marks. Marks 
batted .444 last year (.524 in SCIAC play) 
and scored 17 runs. His .600 on base 
percentage was tops on the team. 

Right-hander Andrew Barber will be re- 
luming on the mound. He came out of the 

bullpen lastseasonand finished witha3.1 1 
earned run average and three saves. In his 
lone start, he pitched a perfect game against 
Cal Tech. 

The Kingsmen will also look for help 
from senior outfielder Ray Arvizu and jun- 
ior pitcher David Jaglowski. 

Marks has high hopes for this year's 
squad. "I think we're really strong," he 
said. "We're not really together yet but we 
have a lot of talent." 

Senior outfielder Chad Miyata also be- 
lieves that the Kingsmen are in for good 
season. "We're young, but this year's team 
will play together," he said. "We need to 
have good team camaraderie. It's my se- 
nior year, and I just want to finish it with a

runs past 


News Editor 

The Kingsmen recorded a 76-72 vic- 
tory over Whittier College on Saturday 
to run their record to 5-1 in SCI AC and 
12-5 overall. 

Whittier is now 0-6 in SCI AC, but the 
close game is typical now that CLU lost 
their two top scorers. 

First Derrick Clark left the team to 
play pro basketball in Australia. He was 
leading the team with 20.8 points and 
6.3 rebounds a game. 

Then, junior point guard Dave Ulloa 
broke a bone in his hand. He was aver- 
aging 12.7 points and 5.4 assists a game. 
Ulloa could still return, though, should 
the Kingsmen make the playoffs. 

"We are working hard in practice and 
putting in extra time to make up for the 
loss of our two top scorers," said junior 
guard Mark Heerema. 

The team now finds itself with no easy 
games as every night is a battle. 

"Our margin of error is almost zero," 
added Heerema. 

Because the team lost two starters, 
others are getting a chance to show their 
skills with their added playing time. 
Against Whittier, Heerema and Chris- 
tian Dunbar scored 17 points, Mike 
Fenton scored 1 6 , and Paul LaMott added 

"Every night someone different steps 
up," said Heerema. 

The Kingsmen continue league play 
against Pomona-Pitzer today at 7:30 in 
the CLU gym. Then they travel to 
Redlands on Feb. 4. 

Although they have had some bad 
luck, the Kingsmen have rebounded 
well and have a great chance to add a 
fourth straight SCIAC title. 

"Everyone is learning their role on the 
team," added Heerema.

Rugby Club Looking for an Exciting Season 

Team plays for the love of the sport; uses all heart and no pads 


Staff Writer 

The CLU Rugby Club is looking forward 
to yet another exciting season. In the past, 
the team has consisted of fun loving yet 
aggressive athletes who were both male 
and female. 

Rugby, much like Australian rules foot- 
ball, is a game of heart and hard hits with- 
out the protection of pads. 

The team led by junior, President Ed 

Ditlefsen, includes thirteen returnees as 
well as a few newcomers. 

Although there are many returnees, the 
team is relatively young. Some of the top 
retumeesare Aaron HeeHee.MattPres ton, 
and MikeTrieberg. In addition to these, An 
Truong is said to be showing plenty of 

The level of competition is high during 
the game but any aggression is always left 
on the field. It is a tradition for the teams to 
attend a social gathering together after the 


When asked why he enjoyed the sport, 
Maes remarked, "I like it because of the 
competition, the overall atmosphere, and 
the social aspect." 

Although their season is underway new 
members are certainly welcome, no expe- 
rience is- necessary. If you wish to join

Regals softball looking for a banner year 

Despite 29-8 record last year, CLU was stiffed in playoff voting 


Staff Writer 

The CLU women's softball team is gun- 
ning for another championship season. 
Revenge will surely be on their minds after 
being denied a shot at the NCAA playoffs 
last year. 

The Regals return seven starters from a 
squad that had a devastating offense and 
dominating pitching. 

The Regals finished the season at a re- 
markable29-8 overall and23-l in the South- 
em California Intercollegiate Athletic Con- 
ference. They even finished the season 
ranked 18th in the nation. 

However, that wasn't good enough for 
the voters who select the teams that are 
worthy of NCAA postseason play. 

CLU was criticized of having played in a 
"soft" conference and was also hurt by its 
poor non-league record (6-7). 

This year, however, could be a different 

The Regals may be so good this season 
that the NCAA selection committee will 

have no choice but to award them a 
postseason bid. 

Leading the charge is two-time All- 
SCIAC member and last year's SCIAC 
Player of the Year, Heidi Stevens. Last 
season's accomplishments included an 
overall batting average of .411 (.479 in 
SCIAC) with 44 hits and 34 rbi. 

But that only fills half of the equation. 
S tevens also started 1 7 games on the mound 
and finished with a record of 13-4 with a 
1.70 ERA. In SCIAC she was almost un- 
beatable with an 11-1 record and a 1.16 

Junior Xochitl Castillo and sophomore 
Gina Delianedis were also unhittable for 
the Regals. Castillo finished 10-1 overall 
with a 2.48 ERA. Delianedis was 5-0 in 
SCIAC with an ERA of 0.20. She allowed 
just 21 hits and one earned run in 35 1/3 
innings of work. The Regals staff was 
strong last year, and with a year of matura- 
tion they should be even better this cam- 

And although the pitching is good, the 
offense will do its best to not get upstaged. 

The left side of the infield is anchored by an 
inseparable tandem — twin sisters Aimee 
and Bekkah Snider. 

Aimee rang up an overall batting average 
of .395 and was fourth on the team in hits 
with 49. However, a sore right shoulder 
which dates back to last season is still 
giving her problems. The third year short- 
stop is a necessary factor to keep the of- 
fense in tune. 

Bekkah hit .343 last year with 37 hits and 
24 rbi. She plays a solid third base and will 
be relied on heavily. 

Sophomore Tracy Little, who finished in 
the top 10 in the nation in runs scored with 
54, hit .460 overall and was a second team 
All-SCIAC performer. Heather Carey, also 
a sophomore, hit .330 overall and started 
35 games. 

The Regals will open their season against 
Southern California College. Kecia Davis 
is in her second year as CLU's skipper, and 
she will be assisted by Marjie Sievers 
(former Regal softball player) and Jason 
Wilson (a former Kingsman baseball

The university continued its ongoing

Dr. Pam Jolicoeur, vice president of

Discussion was also held on die topic 
of the Master Plan with a description of 
recent modifications prompted by com- 
ments from the faculty.

Need for gun control called for by 
Brown Bag Series guest speaker 

Violence problem is not restricted to the inner-city 


Staff Writer 

"Children and Violence" was the topic 
for discussion during a Feb. 7 Brown Bag 
Series meeting at the Women's Resource 
Center (located in Second Wind). 

The guest speaker was Karen Ingram, the 
vice president of Lutheran Social Services 
of Southern California. A strong advocate 
of gun control and a member of the 
Children's Defense Fund, Ingram stressed, 
"It's the availability of guns that leads to 

The experience that helped propel Ingram 
into die fight against gun violence was 
when her 9-year-old Goddaughter asked 
her, "Do you mink somebody's going to 
kill me someday?" Ingram was shocked at 
such a disturbing question coming from 
such a young child, and knew that some- 
thing had to be done. Ingram stated, "It's 
very realistic for kids to think they'll be 
killed in gun violence." 

Statistics given by Ingram show that chil- 
dren havea higher chanceof being killed in 
gun violence before their 20th birthday 
than by any other childhood disease or 


"Every two days the equivalent of one 
classroom full of children is killed by gun- 
fire and die numbers are going up," Ingram 

The issue of children and violence is not 
just an inner-city issue. According to 
Ingram, the number of violence by guns is 
the suburbs is only slighUy less than in the 
inner-city. Out of the total number of 
children killed by gun violence, whiles 
outnumbered blacksand Latinos combined. 
"A lot of the whiles aren't living in the 
inner-city. They 're living in rural America. 
This is our problem, collectively," Ingram 

The media covers news dealing with chil- 
dren and gun violence frequendy. "One of 
the th ings that bothers me about the media' s 
attention on it is that it doesn't bother us 
anymore," Ingram said. She feels that it 
becomes so commonplace that we tend to 
become insensitive to it. "It's not right," 
Ingram said, "this is something we have 
some control over. We can make an impact 
and see some benefits if we get involved."

CLC provides 

new computers, 
improves old 

Funds raised at an 
auction in October 


Staff Writer 

The Community Leaders Club (CLC) 
of Thousand Oaks provided the opportu- 
nity for more CLU students to drive on 
the information super highway. 

CLC is a key support organization for 
California Lutheran University and is 
located in Thousand Oaks. 

Julius Bianchi, Director of User Sup- 
port Services, said Thursday, "Prior to 
this week, it was extremely different. 
We were using 1981 computers with 
1995 software. The computers would 
literally take five minutes just to boot 

The CLC held an auction in October 
that raised money for the new comput- 

Fourteen new computers were put into 
the D-building last week. 

The computers from the D-building 
replaced the "dinosaurs" in the library, 
says Bianchi. 

Carol Keahekian, director of Campus 
Relations, was responsible for writing 
the proposal to the CLC. 

In addition to purchasing the new com- 
puters, CLC paid for the memory up- 
grades on the computers in room Peters 
105, and. provided the computerized over- 
head equipment monitors. 

CLC supports many other activities 
that directly benefit CLU students. 
Among its many accomplishments in 
1 994 , CLC granted six scholarships, dis- 
tributed S40.000 to CLU faculty for aca- 
demic programs and co-sponsored the 
Vintage Car Show for the first time. 
"CLC has made student life more pleas- 
ant," said Bianchi. 

"Students can now use Gopher and the 
Internet to access and identify informa- 
tion and resources," he added.

Measles Outbreak 

There has been widespread measles outbreak in Ventura 
County. Beverly Kemmerling of Health Services urges 
everyone who has not had a measles vaccine since 1980 to 
get vaccinated. If you are exposed to the measles, it takes 
ten days to develop symptoms that include fever, cough, 
runny nose and red, watery eyes. These occur three to 
seven days before a red, blotchy rash appears on the body. 
Serious cases can lead to pneumonia, dehydration, 
encephalitis and other respiratory ailments. If left untreated 
this could be fatal. To see if you are up to date on your 
vaccinations or to get vaccinated, call health services at 
ext. 3225. There is a $4 charge for the shot.

Internships at mental hospital offer students first-hand experience 

Psychology majors are given a rare opportunity; applying is encouraged by CLU professor 


Staff Writer 

For the past decade, Cal Lutheran has 
sentstudents to Camarillo State Hospital to 
work with real-life menial hospital patients 
in an effort to integrate knowledge with 
practical training. 

Dr. Julie Kuehnel, chair of the psychol- 
ogy department on campus, said that this is 
a good program which prepares psychol- 
ogy majors for their careers in this field. 

"It is really valuable training," she said, 
refering to the practicum started some ten 
years ago for students of CLU. 

"Originally, how it came about is that 
we had some ties with the faculty in the 
research department at UCLA," Kuehnel 

These lies that eventually led to the hook 
up with Camarillo State Hospital, which 
has been gracious in accepting interns from 

The hospital takes in a maximum of 12 
students from Cal Lutheran each semester. 
Each student, however, can repeat the 
practicum training in separate semesters. 

Kuehnel explained that it is important 
for the classes to be small because they 

offer a tightly supervised program. Students' performances are, in lum.moni-

The new three strikes law will take 
money away from higher education 


Editor in Chief 

Thecost of the criminal justice system 
will increase 100 to 150 percent, from 
S4.5 to S6.5 billion with the new three 
strikes law according to a Rand Corpora- 
tion study. 

Dr. Jonathan Caulkins, of the Rand 
Corporation, spoke about the estimated 
costs and benefits of the three strikes 
laws at Richter Lecture Hall on Feb. 6. 
Rand's research found that serious 
crime will decrease by 23 to 34 percent 
which would be a decrease of 270,000 to 
410,000 crimes. 

The study found that a 28 percent 
decrease in violent crimes would cost 
S5.5 billion. 

Rand wanted to shed some light on 
what would be the costs and alternatives 
to the three strikes law. 

They found that 36 percent of 
California's budget will come from K- 
12, 35 percent from health and welfare, 
12 percent from higher education, nine 
percent from corrections and nine per- 
cent from other sources. 

Caulkins' said, "If a million dollars in 
prevention can save one kid's life then 
it's an alternative that can be as cost 
effective as three strikes."

Solution to weekend life 
at CLU lies in your mind 

In the past, it was common to hear students 
complain about the lack of weekend enter- 
tainment on the CLU campus. Several events 
were planned and have taken place in order to 
hopefully appease the students. 

With the additions of activities like the 
CLU Shuttle and Club Caf, it is clear that 
there are those who see this issue of boredom 
as a force that can be conquered. 

Despite the conscious and admirable effort 
by some, students are still often heard com- 
plaining that there is nothing to do. 

These students, however, fail to compre- 
hend that there will still be nothing to do on 
campus unless they either attend the activi- 
ties that are supplied for them, or take the 
initiative to plan something themselves. 

As impossible as it may seem, this school is 
owned by its students, and its students have 
all the right and responsibility to mold it into 
what they need and want it to be. For ex- 
ample, if Club Caf isn't what students think 
it should be, then it is their responsibity to try 
and change it before they have the right to 
complain that it is not what they want. 

Until the student body takes the responsi- 
bility upon themselves to change, there will 
be no move from weekend boredom to action 
packed days and nights. 

In order to do so the complaints of the 
students must turn into creative ideas, and 
active participation. If this were to happen 
there would be a bare minimum of boredom 
in campus life because, if you weren't par- 
ticipating in an activity, at least you would be 
planning your own. 

Attend weekly senate meetings on Wednes- 
day nights or look into becoming part of the 
weekend summit. There are plenty of oppor- 
tunities out there, just grasp them. 

With the real world not to far away for 
many students, it is time to realize that things 
are not always handed to us. We cannot 
expect the things we want to happen to take 
place without a little bit of effort on our part.

Traveling on the road to romance 


Staff Writer 

I was driving down the street, obeying all traffic laws, 
when I wondered why romance couldn't be that easy. The 
101 freeway is so straight forward, unlike the highways of 
love which are all to often littered with detours, U-turns 
and on those particularly bad days, train wrecks. 
The DM V puts out a manual for the roads of our state, but 
no government body charts the streets of the heart. The 
actions associated with signs like "No Crossing," "Merge 
Left" and "Slop" are crystal clearcompared to the ambigu- 
ous signals that we, as sexual beings, send out to those 
around us. 

A wink can be a symbol of one's willingness to further 
a meaningful relationship which may culminate in a long 
term commitment or it can mean that the winker put one's 
contacts in backwards. 
The smile is another instrument of many tasks. It is often 
difficult to know if a grin is an expression of bliss at your 

presence or a gleam of hope that you will soon be gone. 
Dealing with questions of amore sends my head spin- 
ning. When I was growing up, no one ever told me the 
difference between playing hard to get and hiding out 

The last woman I went out with was furious that I opened 
the door for her. 

When I said I was just being respectful, I was told that I 
was illustrating yet another way that men keep women 
from gaining equal ground. I replied, "Oops." 

Getting to know someone is an obstacle course marked 
by pitfalls and dead ends. NavigaUng this area makes one 
understand how the bat must feel, running into walls 
endlessly before reaching its goal. 

The more I think about it, I kind of enjoy the uncertainty 
of the relationship genesis. In working toward knowing 
another person intimately, I also move toward a greater 
understanding of myself. 

I guess that's where the strength of true love comes from. 
Maybe the road map to the highway of the heart is only 
revealed when one has found their destination.

Democrats and Republicans battle over Mexico's economy 

Foreign aid benefits ^ 


CLU College Democrats 

Should America help Mexico raise the peso value? 
"Yes," not only out of the goodness of our hearts, but 
because when neighbors are having a crisis it will affect 
this country. 

Evidence shows that the collapse of the Mexican economy 
would cause many Latin Americans and several Eastern 
European countries to have concomitant economic crisis 
themselves. Chile, Argentina and Braziltrigger a world- 
wide economic problem that might further jeopardize 
American investments. 

If the peso is allowed to collapse, Mexico may be forced 
to place strict quotas on imports slashing U.S. sales by at 
least $20 billion, causing unemployment and an economic 
slowdown across the United States, particularly in Cali- 
fornia and Texas. 

Illegal immigration will increase and already has in- 
creased; jobs and education will suffer in California, 
Texas and other western states; and the investments the 
United States has made in Mexico will be jeopardized. 
Negating the benefits from our recent agreements, namely 
the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and 
the General Agreement of Trade and Tariffs (GATT). The 
proposal to have all private Mexican payments on oil go 
through specialized accounts at the New York Federal 
Reserve Bank is practically a solid idea. 
The critics of the rescue of Mexico's economy have used 
a series of irrational arguments based on a misunderstand- 
ing of the international situation and a distortion of the 
actual numbers involved. Attacks on the federal aid to 
foreign countries have exaggerated the extent of the ex- 

The federal budget last year allocated $13.7 billion for 
all foreign nations including this hemisphere. This foreign 
assistance amounted to less than one percent of the trillion 
dollar budget. The critics further err in assuming that all 
the foreign aid is somehow diverted from essential project 
like Head Start, which is not affected by the aid. 

The people who have benefitted from U.S. aid have in 
fact found this assistance to allow them to provide new 
markets for American products as well as to enjoy greater 
prosperity in their own countries. 

The opponents of the emergency relief should be far 
more concerned with the distribution of foreign aid than 
their present emphasis on eliminating all aid. Their fear 
that the existence of a prosperous neighbor will somehow 
detract from U.S. productivity or market is diametrically 
opposite to the evidence available. American prosperity 
will be facilitated if we work together with our neighbor. 
We will help them while helping ourselves. 



A contract with America, not a contract with Mexico 


CLU College Republicans 

Shhh. Hear that? Hear mat giant sucking sound? It's the 
massive taxpayer financed U.S. monetary aid going south 
to Mexico, to bail out their corrupt economy once again. 

In President Clinton's first real action of the year he 
didn'traise minimum wage, increase job training funding, 
initiate campaign reform or lower taxes. Instead, he im- 
posed upon the people, through executive order, unpopu- 
lar loan guarantees in the amount of $20 billion to save 
corrupt Mexican corporations and U.S. investors, thus 
entering us into an expensive and dangerous contract with 
Mexico and Wall Street while ignoring the hard-working 
taxpaying American. 

Clinton's executive order came through on January 31, 
after Congress had rejected the idea of bailing Mexico out 
again. Clinton realized that the newly elected Congress, 
now more in touch with their constituents, would not pass 
such a wanton and reckless aid expenditure. Clinton could 
not gain the approval of the Democrats, more than two- 
thirds of which would not jump on board Clinton's run- 
away train. Recognizing the feeble ground that he was 
standing on with Congress, Clinton decided to bypass and 
ignore the representatives of the people, and order the 
allocation of $20 billion. 

Not only was the President's action incredibly undemo- 
cratic and in blatant violation of our nation's spirit, but it 

was also irresponsible and unwise. 
The bailout may have been warranted if the U.S. was noi 
in debt itself and did not have problems of its own, but 
unfortunately this is not the case. The United States 
already spends hundreds of billions of dollars a year on 
foreign aid. We cannot afford to continue these irrespon- 
sible expenditures without deep consideration. 

Wouldn't it be more wise to spend $20 billion on 
Americans? Americans who are hungry, needy or out of 
work. Shouldn't we bailout the taxpaying citizens of 
Orange County before we bailout a foreign nation? Let us 
take care of ourselves now, so we may take care of others 

Furthermore, let's consider the soundness of the 
President's investment. Mexico has devalued the peso 
every six years for the past two decades, in 1976, 1982, 
1986 and 1994. 

Mexico can do that because Uncle Sam is continually 
there to give them grants and loans that they have repeat- 
edly defaulted on. 

This time the devaluement can be attributed to an inten- 
tionally artificial healthy Mexican economy which pumped 
up the peso to attract foreign investors. Should we reward 
this type of reckless economic policy? It is all too obvi- 
ous — of course not. 

We must implore President Clinton, to responsibly 
work with and not around the representatives of the 
people, act only on financially intelligent aid policies, and 
for the sake of the hardworking taxpayers of this great 
nation, think of America first!

CLU shuttle explores 
L.A. points of interest 


Staff Writer 

The CLU Shuttle is a program de- 
signed to attract student's attention and 
provide them with an intriguing option 
for the 

The program uses vans to transport 
students to various points of interest 
through out L.A and Ventura County. 

Bill Stott, director of Student Develop- 
ment, says that the CLU Shuttle is a great 
program because it "gets students to- 
gether as a group to visit interesting 

The CLU Shuttle is a relatively new 
program, the first outing was on Jan. 23 
when students experienced a "Day in 
Ventura County," Stott says. The trip 
consisted of a visit to theRonald Reagan 
Presidential Library, Point Mugu and the 
Ventura Harbor Village. Stott says "the 
people who went really had a good time." 

A "Day in Santa Barbara" followed on 
Feb. 5, the agenda consisted of a trip to 
the zoo, as well as visits to Steams Wharf 
and State Street, Stott says. 

Stott says he realizes the budgetary 
concerns of students, which is why each 
trip "was only a buck." 

This price also applies to the upcoming 
"Day in L.A" on Feb. 26, which will whisk 
students away to the glitter of Universal 
City Walkand the glamour of Rodeo Drive, 
Stott says. 

The diversity of the locations visited on 
each trip is the one element which is found 
with every shuttle. Stott says this diversity 
is intentional because the program is de- 
signed to visit a "blend of cultural and 

touristy stuff." 

One of the cultural visits will be a show- 
ing of "Miss Saigon," a performance of 
which the Shuttle is attending on March 4. 
Stott says that "the tickets, which are usu- 
ally $40 are only going to cost S25 because 
the senate subsidized the tickets." On the 
negative side, Stott says that "we could 
only get 20 tickets." 

Stott says that the CLU Shuttle is just 
one small part of the large scope of activi- 
ties available to students. 

With the addition of the ShutUe to the 
existing variety of events and activities, 
Stott says his goal is coming closer to 
realization. Stoitdescribes his goal for CLU 
as "having something great to do every 
day of the week." 
On a less epic scale, Stott says he "really 
wants to make things rock on the week-

VISTA program promotes service 
learning: people helping people 

University Volunteer Center reaches out to the community 


Staff Writer 

'Increasing student participation and the 
spirit of volunteering, while focusing on 
service learning is the center's goals', said 
Janice Levine, new director of the Univer- 
sity Volunteer Center. 

In the past, the center had been run by 
Nicole Whitmarsh, who will continue to 
hold her position as student director. 

Levine, the new VISTA (Volunteer in 
Service to America)program volunteer, is 
helping the center get into action by creat- 
ing community service and service learn- 
ing centers. "We serve as a liaison between 
the university and the community," Levine 

The volunteer center organizes commu- 
nity service projects in near-by areas. "We 
are really reaching on into the 
community/'Levine said. All projects are 
located in Ventura County and some areas 
of Los Angeles County. 

"We can match students' or faculty up 
with short term projects or if they want to 
commit to a specific time frame, we will 
hook them up with a service agency." Any- 
one who wishes to help support the com- 
munity by volunteering can come to the 

Finding a way into service learning may 
help a students academic life as well as 
enhancing their personal lives. "One of our 
goals here is to try and give some type of 
credit to students who participate in volun- 
teering," Levine said. 'This would work 
sort of like an internship," she added. 

For example, if a child psychology ma- 
jor, were to volunteer to work with chil- 
dren, this would give the student the chance 
to help the community while fulfilling their 

learning desires, Levine said. "This is 
really important for the student because 
the student can gain new skills," she added. 

"We want to be able to connect students 
to the real world by enhancing student's 
skills," Levine said. Students' can receive 
the personal satisfaction of knowing a 
new skill has been learned, while helping 
something or someone in need, she added. 

President Luedtke recently received a 
letter from President Clinton, that stressed 
the point, "By bringing the community to 
the classroom and the classroom to the 
community, you will enable your students 
to apply the lessons they have learned to 
the critical issues that affect our commu- 

This leads to the center's quality of 
people helping people. 'That's what it's 
all about: The general willingness to help 
and serve," Levine said. "I think this 
university has attracted this type of stu- 
dent," she added. 

Levine welcomes anyone to participate. 
The center will maintain a notebook avail- 
able to students and faculty that listprojects 
and agencies that may be of interest. 

Watch out for posters, flyers and mail 
sluffers regarding information on the Vol- 
unteer Center. "I am also more than will- 
ing to speak in classrooms for five minutes 
to let people know what we are all about," 
Levine said. 

The Volunteer Center is now located in 
the Student Resources Center, widely 
known as the "round building," extension 
3680. The center is open Monday through 
Friday, from 9a.m. to 5p.m. and offers a 
wide range of projects and services to 
choose from.

CLU students running for state office 

College Republicans 
dedicated to improving 
the state board 


Editor in Chief 



Contributing Writer 

Two CLU students have their sights set on offices in the 
California College Republican Board. Adam Abrahms, 
current Area Seven Director, and Brian Porter, current 
CLU College Republicans Chairman, are hoping to ad- 
vance not only themselves, but to further increase the 
growing reputation of Cal Lutheran statewide. 

Abrahms is running for the position of Central Vice- 
Chairman. The state is divided into three regions: north- 
ern, central and southern. CLU falls in the central region, 
which stretches north from Ventura County to Santa Clara 
County, east to the Nevada border and west to the Pacific 

Abrahms will manage four area directors and sit on the 
state board. He will lend influence in creating resolutions 

Brian Porter and Adam Abrahms

for College Republicans statewide. 

Porter is vying for Area Seven Director, which Abrahms 
will be vacating upon the completion of the school year. 
He will be the crucial link between the stale board and the 
chairmen of several clubsacross Ventura, San Luis Obispo 

and Santa Barbara counties. Porter will also represent 
these colleges on the state board. 

Porter, in addition to his position on the CLU College 
Republican board, is serving as the central region cam- 
paign coordinator. 

"Prior to last year, there was no recognized College 
Republicans club on campus. Now because of the hard 
work of Brian and I, we're the fifth most powerful school 
in the state," said Abrahms. 

"We have seen the largest influx of loyal and hard- 
working Republican students in CLU history this year," 
added Porter. 

Porter and Abrahms, along with several other CLU 
College Republicans, are coordinating trips to the various 
upcoming conventions across the state. These trips will be 
beneficial to students who attend, since they will be 
introduced to live campaigns. 

Campaigns for various positions are currently in full 
force across the state. They will culminate with state 
elections at a convention in April. The next major event is 
the California Republican Party Convention (CRPC) at 
the end of this month in Sacramento. The Spring CRPC is 
traditionally the official kickoff for most College Repub- 
lican campaigns. 

The CLU College Republicans are planning to attend 
and lend support to Abrahms and Porter, as well as other 


A cure has been found for the college mathophobic 

CLU teacher beats 
student fears 


Contributing Writer 

Mathaphobic ... one who possesses an irrational, ex- 
cessive and persistent fear of taking a math class. 

It is truly a defective gene that renders members of 
your family hopelessly lost when it comes to math or 
could it be you are just a mathaphobic? 

A common complaint among ADEP students is that 
the fear of taking finite mam rises exponentially with 
the passing of years from the last high school mam class. 
Is this fear irrational or is there some basis for the dread? 
More importantly, what is the best course of action for 
those so afflicted, considering finite math is a require- 
ment for graduation for most? 

Sandy Lofstock, in addition to teaching traditional 
day courses in mathematics, teaches both Intermediate 
algebra and finite math for ADEP. Nearly every gradu- 
ating senior has taken at least one of Lofstock's classes, 
which gives her real insight to human behavior. 

"Often students wait until it's only my classes mat 
stand between them and graduation," she says. "Under- 
standing their concern, I try to make the class a pleasant 
experience for everyone." 

Lofstock's classes are famous for the nightly "treats" 
and raucous laughter emanating from the room. "Be- 
tween algebra and finite, there is a real bonding among 
my students. A real sense of pride develops, which 
hopefully stays with the students throughout their busi- 
ness careers." 

Andy Souza, an ADEP student since Spring 1991 , is 

hnf tjjszsl 






employed by Rockwell in Program Security and is now "The stigma attached to being in that group was 

taking intermediate algebra. "I hadn't had math since ninth something I never outgrew," she says. "I never believed 
grade algebra," he says. "I thought this was my one real that I could be successful at math." 
stumbling block to getting through school. I've found that Entrance exams are required for both intermediate 
it's not as bad as I thought." Souza had some advance algebra and finite math, however, refresher books and 
insight into the class however. His wife, Angie, graduated tapes are available at the CLU library, bookstores or 
in May 1994 and is a product of Lofstock's teaching skills, even Blockbuster Video. Through regular attendance, 
Chosen by ADEP students as one of their favorite conscientiously doing homework and a little self confi- 
teachers, Lofstock's gift for teaching is impressive. She dence, math can be a positive experience, 
takes students wiih varying 
math backgrounds and skills 
to a competency level which 
will allow them to make busi- 
ness decisions based on 
sound mathematical analy- 
sis and compulation. 

"For some of my students 
it has been 30 years since 
their last algebra class. That 
takes some catching up," 
Lofstock says. 

Another example of ADEP 
students is Gwen Kellas, 
who has been here since 
1993. She received her high 
school education in a con- 
vent in England 

"In England, you are given 
anexamatagell which will 
determine whether you go 
on to trade school or follow 
a college prep path." says 
Kellas. She passed the exam 
to get into the convent school 
for "young ladies" only, but 
was slotted in the lowest 
math group.

Poetry read in honor of Black History Month 


Managing Editor 

CLU students gathered in the Thompson 
Lounge Sunday night for an informal Afri- 
can American poetry reading in honor of 
Black History Month. 

The event was put on by Emily Aurich, 
resident assistant in Pederson. "I didn't see 
a lot of emphasis on (Black History Month) 
campus," Aurich said of her reasons for 
putting the event on. 

Although the mood of the evening was 
informal, the tone of the poems read gave a 
serious twist to Aurich's program. 

Maqueda Hooks started off the reading 
with a poem entitled "Laying on of Hands" 
by Shane. 

Featuring two of his own poems, senior 
Harvey Jones took the floor next with a 
poem entitled "A Sketch in Time." 

"When I wrote it, it made me feel as if I 
was just a sketch in time," proclaimed Jones. 
This poem was followed by another of 
Jones's original poems entitled "What Am 
I? "Jones clearly held the attention of the 
audience with the power and emotion he 
used to express the question the poems title 

Jones began the poem by giving some 
historical background to the imagery repre- 
sented in his poem including things such as 
the Emancipation Proclamation and the 
Black Codes. 

'To me, to say I'm an African -American 
is to say I'm an African and American, yet 
I know nothing of Africa," emphasized 
Jones, adding, "I consider myself to be

Improv troupe proves 
funny once again 

Little Theater filled to capacity Friday Night 


Managing Editor 

The Little Theatre was filled to capacity on Friday night 
with people anxious to laugh at whatever CLU's Improv 
troupe threw at them. 

Friday's event started off with the introduction of the 
evening's judge, Harry Domicone, assistant professor at 
the school of business, by Kevin Kem, instructor of 

The troupe was divided into two teams, the blue team led 
by senior Brian Harper and the red team led by senior 
Kelly Culwell. 

After the introduction of the teams, Culwell read the top 
ten list consisting of the lop ten messages on Valentine's 
Day candy. 

A stirring rendition of the National Anthem by the 
Kingsmen Quartet minus two followed. Harper and senior 
Garth Criswell were the only two present because the 
other members were reported to have wanted too much 
money, said Harper. 

The blue team started out the game playing with various 
interpretations of different movies with Culwell and alum 
Josh Green in for the red team and Harper and junior Desta 
Ronning in for the blue team. The judge awarded the blue 
team 10 points and the red team five. 

Emotional party consisted of blue team members Ronning 
and freshman Tony Gardner and red team members junior 
Eddie Ditlefsen and Culwell. The blue team proved to be 
funnier, coming out with a score of 15 to the blue team's 

Games such as Hitchhiker and the Alphabet game soon 
followed. The blue team had problems in the Alphabet 
game when Gardner had trouble remembering what came 

From Left: Gretchen Swett, Corey Evans, and 

Holly Forsell Photo by Bradley Leese 

after the letter "L"in the alphabet. The score reached 1 5 for the blue 
and six for the red. 

The Dating Game was next with the audience picking sophomore 
Corey Evans for resident director Mike Fodrea. 

Expert, freeze, movie dubbing and standing, sitting, kneeling 
were some of the other games the troupe entertained the audience 

During the evening, each team was given the opportunity to allow 
a member of the aud ience to experience their best or worst Valen ti ne ' s 
Day. Mike Morris was treated to his dream Valentine's Day by the 
blue team, while sophomore Erin Rivers was treated to her worst 
Valentine's Day by the red team. 

In the game of "opening line, closing line," Green stole the show 
and the lead for the red team when he broke one of the chairs that 
he and Culwell were using in the game. The game ended with a 
surprise score of 26 for the red team and 16 for the blue. 

If interested in attending the next Improv show look for them on 
Feb. 24.

Brubaker speaks on finding 
feminine images of God 

Chapel focuses on women and the church 


Religion Editor 

Women are seeking new ways of looking 
at God, said Dr. Pamela Brubaker when in 
chapel last Wednesday. 

Brubaker said women need to see them- 
selves reflected in the images the church 
uses to understand God. 

"In rediscovering the feminine face of 
God, we women are trying to look at the 
image of God in us as fully as it is in our 
brothers," she said. 

Brubaker mentioned serveral ways that 
the church has managed to exclude the use 
of feminine imagery. Among these was the 
language used to describe God. 

'The exclusive use of the male pronoun 
for God, as well as only using masculine 
images of God such as 'Father' and 'King' 
have hidden the feminine face of God from 
us," she said. 

Brubaker said that such language creates 
an environment in which men can experi- 
ence God in a way women are unable to 
relate with. 

"Men see themselves reflected in the di- 
vinity in a way that women do not," the 
speaker said. 

However, Brubaker said that female im- 
ages for God are apparent in the Scriptures 
and in the structure of the early church, in 
which women played an integral role. 

She talked about two parables from the 
NewTestament that parallel one another, 
one with a male and one with a female as 
the central figure. 

The first was the story in which a shep- 
herd leaves his flock to search for one lost 

The second is a parable from the Gospel 

of Luke in which a woman has several 

coins, but when she loses one of them she 
sweeps the whole house until she finds the 

one lost coin. 

"The woman stands for God in the par- 
able as fully as does the man, the shep- 
herd," said Brubaker. 

Although she said that the language of 
the church needs to be more inclusive of 
feminine images, Brubaker acknowledged 
that no image can completely express the 
nature of God. 

"No language about God will ever be 
fully adequate to the burning mystery which 

it signifies," she said.

have a chance to see how it applies to 
your own life," she said. 

Moller agreed that there is something 
to be gained by studying the Bible in an 
environment different than the class- 

"I think people speak more freely," she 
said, "You learn more from other people. 
That's what I really like about this. You get 
to hear other people's opinions." 
Besides, said student Derek Helton, "You 
don't have to take notes."

The team will try to keep the streak alive 
on Friday when they will host Occidental 
College, and on Tuesday as they travel to 
Claremont-Mudd-Scripps. They will close 
out their regular season schedule on Thurs- 
day, Feb. 23 at home against the University 
of LaVeme. 

On Saturday, the Regals were led by 
seniors Kelli McCaskill and Shani Smyth. 
McCaskill poured in 32 points in the vic- 
tory while Smyth added 19. 

Regal's head coach Tim La Kose is very 
pleased with the success of the team so far, 
and believes that the best is yet to come. 

"We haven't peaked yet. We're getting 
better each game," he said. "We're hoping 
to peak at the playoffs." 

As for the rest of the regular season, La 
Kose believes that Claremont will be the 
Regals' toughest opponent. Claremoni's 
lone conference loss came at the hands of 
CLU on Jan. 27. 

La Kose is optimistic about the Regals' 
chances in the playoffs, but he does not 
want to look too far ahead. "We're taking 
it one game at a time," he said. "That 
philosophy has worked for us so far and I 
think that we'll stick to iL"

Regals softball opens season with a split 

Team getting set to begin conference play on Friday at Redlands 


Staff Writer 

The Regals softball team opened the regu- 
lar season Saturday with a doubleheader 
against Southern California College hop- 
ing to bring home two victories. However, 
they left the Costa Mesa campus with two 
error plagued losses instead. 

The Regals open SCIAC play Friday at 
the University of Redlands and then come 
home for the home opener on Saturday 
against Chapman. Friday's game starts at 
2:00 p.m. and Saturday's will begin at 

Heidi Stevens started the first game Sat- 
urday allowing only four earned runs over 
six complete innings of work. 

However, the Regals committed five er- 
rors which accounted for six unearned runs. 

The mistakes wound up costing them their 
first loss of the season, 10-4. 

Tracy Little contributed two hits in the 
game as she went 2 for 4 in the opener. 

"It was a very disappointing loss, and our 
intensity as a team was just not there," head 
coach Kecia Davis said. "SCC is good but 
they're not six runs better than us," she 

In the second game of the doubleheader, 
Gina Delianedis started for the Regals in 
what ended up being a shortened game 
because of the league's mercy rule. 

The Regals lost the game 10-1, scoring 
one run on two hits. 

"We came out very fiat. Maybe we were 
intimidated," said Davis. 

On Sunday, however, the Regals were 
out to redeem themselves and the Tritons

Kingsmen get a scare from Cal Tech 

Rider and Nagle lead CLU basketball over scrappy Beavers 

Staff Writer 

The Kingsmen basketball team held off 
the surprisingly feisty Cal Tech Beavers 
last Saturday at home. The seldom-used 
Greg Nagle poured in a career high 20 
points to spark CLU. 

The 73-53 win came as a surprise to the 
Kingsmen faithful, who are accustomed to 
watching CLU blow out Cal Tech by at 
least 50. 

Tension ran high at one point as the 
much-improved Beavers (8-1 1 overall, 0- 
10 in SCIAC) only trailed by two points at 
the half, 36-34. 

However, it was tradition and mystique 
that finally overtook the Beavers. CLU 
(15-6, 8-2)outscored Cal Tech 37-19 in the 
second half, as the Beavers managed to hit 
on only seven of 22 (32 percent) from the 

Jon Rider tossed in 21 points in the win 
on nine of 13 shooting. He also yanked 
down nine rebounds and dished off six 
assists— al 1 were game-highs for the Purple 
and Gold. 

But the real hero of the game was the 6- 
foot-1 guard Nagle. The sophomore trans- 
fer from Glendale Community College hit 
on six of 10 three-point attempts, taking 
advantage of the Beavers' zone defense. 
He started in place of Mark Heerema. 

Nagle is seeing more playing lime as of 
late; three days earlier he scored 13 points 
in an 84-76 victory over Occidental Col- 

Kingsmen head coach Rich Rider talks to his players during a time-out.

It was not all roses for the Kingsmen, 
though, as another player wentdown. Mike 
Fenton.oneofCLU'smostconsistent play- 
ers, suffered a badly turned left ankle. It is 
unclear whether he will be back this sea- 

The Kingsmen have four regular season 
games left this year. It is likely that they 
must win all four to make the NCAA play- 


Their toughest test may be tonight against 
the University of La Verne, who toppled 
CLU 83-68 on Jan. 21. 

The Kingsmen will then battle Claremont- 
Mudd-Scripps (Feb. 18), Whittier 
23), who beat CLU 60-57 earlier in the

Baseball team starts slowly; 
league play to begin on Friday 

After slow start, Kingsmen hoping to begin winning 


News Editor 

After last years 31-9-1 record, the 
Kingsmen baseball squad has begun this 
year in disappointing fashion. 

First they lost their season opener 
against Cal Poly San Luis Obispo by a 
score of 8-6. 

Unfortunately, their luck did not 
change as they lost to Cal State Hay ward 
16-7 making them 0-2 on the season. 

The Kingsmen played on Feb. 14 at 
The Master's Col lege. They begin league 
on Friday when they open up at the 
University of La Veme at 2:30 p.m. 

After the La Veme game, the Kings- 
men return home to battle La Verne in 
the home league opener. 

Then they play Westmont at home on 
Monday, Feb. 20 in a non-league con- 

Despite the team's poor start, the play- 
ers are trying to stay upbeatand hopeful. 

"We have to keep a positive altitude, it 
is going to take experience to get on the 
right track," said First baseman John 

The team lost seven starters and is not 
very experienced. Players are trying to 

adjust to their new roles and adapt to 
more playing time. 

"We have a young team, I think we will 
peak al the end of the season," said "As 
soon as we start playing, things will starl 
rolling for us," said Becker. 

As league begins, so do more games as 
they play two per week. With these added 
games, play should improve. 

The Kingsmen hope to dominate 
SCIAC as they did last year posting a 20- 
1 league record. When the league begins, 
the team hopes to start coming together 
and playing better ball. 

Scoring runs has not been a problem as 
the Kingsmen have scored 1 5 runs in two 
games; however, they have given up 24 

With players who have proven them- 
selves in the past, this team is too good to 
stay down. 

One thing is for sure, it is too early to 
begin panicking. The Kingsmen began 
last year with a loss before recovering to 
make it to the NCAA Division III West 
Regional Series at San Diego. 

"We haven't played up to our capabili- 
ties yet," said outfielder Chad Miyata. 

When they do hopefully that will mean 
another successful season like last year's 
team had. 

Men's tennis 
serving up aces 


Staff Writer 

Every coach's goal is to take his or her 
team to the top. Mike Gennctte, the 
CLU men's tennis coach is no exception 

"Last year, we were ranked 24th. If wc 
are ranked in the top 10 this year, it would 
please me very much," said Gennette. 

His goal this year may be easier to ac- 
complish due to the fact he has a complete 
team and his top players are reluming. 

"This year we have a full roster. The 
guys also have a different attitude and 
they're pushing not only themselves but 
also myself,"said Gennette. 

Players such as Mark Ellis and Thomas 
Zelenoviz are just twoof those thatGennette 
is looking to, hoping to take the team to 
their goal of a higher ranking. 

His goal is also to recruit players and 
make the team strong enough to be one of 
the top teams in SCIAC play. 

"If I work hard recruiting, and the guys 
dedicate themselves, we can be the team to 
reckon with this year,"said Gennette. 

The coach's dream is to have a team 
which can hold its own against Division I 
schools such as UCLA, USC and other top 
tennis schools. 

With the hard work of the players and the 
coaching staff, the CLU men's tennis team 
is looking forward to a successful 1995 
season in which they'll not only garner a 
higher ranking, but also create a team that 
will be a contender for years to come. 

Regals tennis 
on its way up 


Staff Writer 

For Nancy Garrison, first-year head coach 
of the women's tennis team, CLU has be- 
come a home away from home. 

'The girls have become my second fam- 
ily. When I'm with them I brag about my 
immediate family. And when I go home, 
I brag about my tennis players,"said Garri- 

The new coach hopes to shock some 
teams in the SCIAC conference with the 
hard playing of such players as Randi 
Christiansen and Ana Olson. 

"This season we're starling from the bot- 
tom and going up. Buton our way, whether 
we win or lose, teams will know that ihey 
played a tough match against CLU," 
stressed the optimistic Garrison. 

As the new head coach, she hopes to 
emphasize hard work, but also wants her 
players to enjoy themselves. 

"At this point I don't care about the win 
or loss columns. I want the girls to work 
hard, love the game and have fun,"said 

Her goal is to take the small group of girls 
she has now and mold them into the best 
tennis players they can be. 

The support that Garrison has received 
from other coaches has also made the tran- 
sition from teaching to coaching easier. 

"Other coaches have given me tips on 
recruiting or helped me with all the paper- 
work. They have been a wonderful support 
system, "said Garrison.
